Protiviti applies a holistic framework that addresses the fundamental aspects of data privacy

Our comprehensive approach to Data Privacy


Data privacy regulations are in flux globally. Even as companies put the finishing touches on extensive preparations to comply with applicable privacy laws, such as the European Union’s GDPR and California’s Consumer Privacy Act, new regulations continue to be introduced in other countries. As legislators pass new laws, they continuously amend those already in effect. Data privacy regulations are not static.

The problem and proposed solutions are complex and evolving. One thing is almost certain—anyone aiming to comply with a specific regulation with a target date in mind will be disappointed as those near-term obligations are supplanted by new and different rules over the mid- and long-term.

In response to this changing landscape, Protiviti applies a holistic framework that addresses the fundamental aspects of data privacy without being locked into any one specific compliance format. We focus on the most pressing data privacy issues companies face, including:

  • Developing strategies to address global data privacy regulations
  • Compliance with regulatory obligations
  • Addressing resource and skill shortages
  • Operationalising privacy needs
  • Implementing privacy tools and remediation support

By working ahead of the law in a comprehensive fashion, Protiviti helps build the foundations of a strong but flexible privacy programme that includes understanding principles, educating stakeholders, and developing an applicable governance structure for managing changes. This base enables companies and their stakeholders to look to the uncertain future of privacy regulations with greater confidence.
