It’s all about relationships
Our privacy governance offering provides a complete solution to your information and data privacy needs.
Through strategic and tactical relationships, we gain a comprehensive understanding of your compliance needs and objectives. This enables us to determine potential risks, identify control measures and make practical recommendations in an innovative and appropriate manner that are tailored for your business.
In this manner, we support your internal data privacy compliance team who is tasked with the responsibility to adopt a culture of change and maintain compliance therewith. It also ensures that privacy and data protection is integrated in your product design and business processes that collect, use, disclose or retain personal data about employees and customers.
Compliance: We assist in ensuring that all business activities comply with applicable privacy and data protection laws; including the Protection of Personal Information Act 4 of 2013 (POPIA), the European Union General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 32 of 2018 as amended (DPA), and relevant subordinate legislation.
Training: We facilitate bespoke training and intervention initiatives regarding relevant legislation to increase awareness among clients and internal legal and compliance teams, helping you to understand the impact and value of data and information.
Process Analysis: We analyse new and existing business initiatives with the aim of identifying relevant privacy and data usage challenges. This provides us with an in-depth understanding of your business processes and allows us to provide guidance on the relevant requirements to ensure compliance with applicable privacy and data protection laws and establish more efficient business processes.
Development: We develop and implement processes and controls to address applicable requirements, including:
- access to personal information,
- managing privacy and data protection policies and notices,
- preparing and filing local regulatory registrations, and
- managing consumer and government requests for data.
Assistance: We support privacy protection due diligence exercises and integration initiatives for merger/acquisition and restructuring projects.
Discovery: We engage with business teams in marketing, finance, rewards and loyalty solutions, sales, technical, warehousing, cyber and intelligence processing, and digital platforms solutions, utilising a privacy-by-design methodology.
