Privacy Intelligence was created, as its name suggests, to support your projects in becoming compliant with the existing and future Privacy legislation, and by doing so to respond to the expectations of all your stakeholders (clients, staff, suppliers, shareholders, supervisors, media, public interest groups, etc.).

Privacy legislation is complicated and requires specific experience. How to understand these expectations? How to interpret the law? All of this must be translated in a solid governance model (the main requirement in the new Regulation). Such a model requires organizational and technical implementations; policies, standards and procedures; awareness and training for all involved; Monitoring and reporting remains an important issue: how to keep cost under control and turn this investment into a competitive advantage (and therefore a differentiator)?

Privacy is all about TRUST. How to create trust?

Personal information is becoming the asset of the present and the future. In our world of big data and the speed this data moves around, the individual risks losing his most precious asset: the fact to be an individual.

Yes, it is true, many individuals do not realize the consequences of their behavior, but this does not mean that we, as data controllers, do not have the responsibility and the ethical obligation to safeguard their personal data and their identity.

For whom is Privacy Intelligence?

Data controllers are all private companies and governmental entities processing personal data and are thus in scope. However, not only controllers need expertise. Other stakeholders, like public interest groups, supervisors (local and European Privacy Commissions), ... must also prepare themselves. Supervisors will get more important responsibilities, not in the least the monitoring and audit requirement. How to translate the legal framework to standards and how to control them efficiently?

Privacy Intelligence can help. We have over 10 years of experience on how privacy works on the field. How to analyze existing organizations and upgrade IT processes and workflows? How to create solid governance? How to organize training and awareness? How to write policies and standards? How to monitor? How to organize specific procedures e.g. breach management?

Summary:

"Privacy" is a notion we all hold dear as an integral part of our personality. It represents the mystery we represent to the rest of the world, our key to uniqueness. Nevertheless, in a society where the prominence of big data is growing at an exponential speed, is there still a place for Privacy? In Europe, we think there is. Privacy is considered a fundamental human right, and companies or government organisations processing ever larger quantities of personal data are submitted to more and more stringent rules. It is therefore counterintuitive to the European mind when companies give the impression that they consider personal data as “just another resource”; a commodity.
