Data Privacy is Essential to All Businesses

All businesses rely upon personal information of employees, partners, and clients, among others, for their day-to-day operations. When these are compromised, not only is there a breach of the Data Privacy Act of 2012, there also exists the risk of losing the goodwill of your employees, partners, and clients. Consequently, their confidence in your business is also compromised.

In doing so, participating organizations shall be in a superior position to fulfill the requirements of the law and to maintain the integrity, confidentiality, and security of the personal information they hold. In turn, they shall be better equipped to preserve the goodwill reposed upon them by their employees, partners, and clients.
