Respecting the privacy of every individual partipating in your organization – customer, employee, everyone – is an ethical obligation. Increasingly it’s also a legal requirement.
Euler Partners has participated in the privacy debate for many years, and we are the founders of and primary evangelists for the Web Science Trust endorsed hi:project, a non-profit project with personal data and privacy in its sights.
Getting it right – for straightforward compliance or perhaps more radically as a source of competitive differentiation – demands an approach that:
- Includes proactive and reactive mechanisms
- Addresses the human process and the technical
- Encompasses governance, risk assessment, planning and policy
- Includes systems design and architecture, and real-time algorithmic checks on data modeling, data flow, analyses and application.
