Summary of article from IAPP, by Jodi Daniels, CIPP/US:

Managing cookies is essential for compliance with privacy and data protection laws worldwide. Establishing a cookie governance program involves designating roles for program leadership, creating a comprehensive policy for cookie use and removal, and implementing systems to manage user consent. Regular audits and privacy impact assessments for new cookie use are necessary to ensure ongoing compliance. Employees should be trained on the cookie program and privacy practices, and privacy notices must accurately reflect the company’s cookie practices. As technologies and privacy laws evolve, businesses should regularly review and update their cookie governance program to maintain compliance.
