We help organisations address their data and privacy protection issues.

We help organisations address their data and privacy protection issues.

Data is one of the most important intangible assets for organisations. Data use differentiates organisations, enabling enhanced product development, personalised service offerings and is a source of competitive edge. Growing commoditisation of data and serious data breaches has called for sweeping regulatory change for greater transparency and accountability.

2018 saw the biggest shake-up in privacy in 20 years. Changes to regulations in Australia and the EU privacy is a top priority for businesses.

Regulations such as the Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme (NDB) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are lifting the standard on security measures, organisation wide data awareness and restoring trust and ownership of personal data with consumers.

Organisations should be aware of their data privacy obligations, whilst ensuring customers are at the heart of everything they do. It’s critical that organisations understand data privacy changes and what action is necessary to comply and how a data breach would be handled, especially as data breaches have potential for a significant brand and reputation damage.
