Data Privacy

For many organizations, information is their most valuable asset - one that they need to collect, handle, and protect with care. To comply with privacy regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Law of Georgia on Personal Data Protection , companies need to invest in data protection strategies by defining their policies and determining the necessary controls to protect personal information. Effective information privacy programs contain a wide range of functions, including:

  • Data and information governance
  • Information lifecycle management
  • Policies and procedures
  • Training and awareness
  • Security controls
  • Contracts, notices, inquiries, complaints, and dispute resolution
  • Breach handling and notification processes
  • Data handling procedures
