New business models, advances in technology, social media and targeted marketing are just a few examples where the need for privacy and data compliance has proven to be of uttermost importance. Cyber threats are prevalent and with organizations managing enormous amounts of data from their customers, partners, employees and any other stakeholder they do business with, the risk of mishandling personal information has increased dramatically.

The three pillars of Privacy Management

  1. Privacy

    • Operations
    • Technology
    • Legal

Privacy Management has different components; it is not just about a Privacy Policy. A robust privacy, data protection, and compliance framework ensures that an organization has the appropriate operational, technological and legal components in place working together and complementing each other. One of these components without the other two cannot enable the organization to reach an optimal level of privacy management.

At Kirke, we ensure that our clients utilize the data they hold to achieve their strategic objectives while managing risk associated around compliance with the privacy and data protection legislation, most notably GDPR, most applicable to their geography and industry.

 

Our data privacy experts’ approach to Privacy Management is to first and foremost assess and understand our clients’ business and their strategic goals.

Secondly, we define the scope to construct a Privacy Management and Data Protection roadmap that is custom-tailored to fit our clients’ objectives. This Privacy Management and Data Protection roadmap provides the solutions guidance to ensure that a robust privacy program is incorporated company-wide. After roadmap alignment, Kirke develops an execution plan, ensuring thorough implementation and adoption of privacy and data protection policies, practices and procedures.

The Kirke approach is differentiated by ensuring that the gaps between written policies and day-to-day operations are identified and minimized throughout the organization.
