Privacy Risk Assurance for All of Your Digital Properties: Websites, Apps and Cloud
Convincing potential customers and business partners that they can trust you with their data is now more important than ever in a new world of heightened data privacy awareness. With greater scrutiny, preventing incidents and keeping regulators at bay is even more critical to your company’s credibility, brand reputation, and the bottom line. Strong data privacy management practices are required to ensure that you are safely collecting and using data across all of the digital properties in your enterprise – websites, apps, and cloud platforms.
Assessment Against FIPPs, OECD, GAPP, CalOPPA, and More …
An assessment of your policies and practices against TRUSTe Enterprise Standards gives you a dashboard analysis of where your company stands against globally recognized privacy frameworks, including FIPPs, OECD, GAPP, state and local frameworks such as CalOPPA, self-regulatory and industry best practices, and more. It also uncovers privacy risks and provides detailed recommendations. So you can take specific steps to close gaps and mitigate risks.
