Privacy by Design

In order for your website to be successful, it is important to have the assistance of someone who has a comprehensive understanding of compliance from the get-go. I provide you with the assistance needed to lead new projects based on Privacy by Design. Many companies make the mistake of developing an entire website only to be reminded of privacy and security compliance at the very end. This approach is extremely incorrect as it not only forces your employees to rework the website but also creates more stress on your budget, and certianly worries your legal or marketing team at the point you were really looking forward to promoting you new website.
It is of importance that your website is created with the privacy and security of consumers in mind at a global scale. This is because in different places around the globe different types of laws prevail. For instance, in Europe, there is growing concerns in big and small businesses over the implementation and enforcement of GDPR. There are eight basic governing principles to GDPR:

  • Requiring Consent over Data Subjects.
  • Should Only Keep the Data for the Purpose It Has Been Collected.
  • Should Be Accurate.
  • Should Be Up-To-Date with Current Legislative.
  • Should Only Be Kept As Long As It Is Required.
  • Should Be Made Available to the Data Owner.
  • Should Be Processed Securely.
  • Should Be Processed within the EU.

Principles such as these are not just limited to Europe as your business might operate outside of the UK as well in places such as California where the implementation of CCPA is prevalent, most countries are now bringing forward laws and enforcement around privacy. More and more companies collecting data, many without even knowing it. Your business might be operating in five countries around the globe, it is important to have a privacy expert who understands the laws and amendments that are requires to be complied within all of these locations.

Obtaining and maintaining customer’s trust is essential as any leakage of information might push your brand into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons and you can through blacklisting some regions. Moreover, if a specific complaint officer or regulator starts investigating your case for privacy measures being complied with; excessive scrutiny can create immense stress in your workplace, bringing your teams production down.
