Privacy compliance is important, but Deloitte is equally focused on the opportunities that privacy legislation brings. The emphasis is on helping organisations reap the benefits of their data. New regulations have forced organisations to create order in the information they have, because order provides insight. Deloitte is here to advise organisations to explore the business potential of their data, and serve as their partner. Could privacy excellence become your organisation’s Unique Selling Point?
- Privacy Response
When confronted with a privacy emergency such as a data breach, an investigation of the Supervisory Authority, negative media attention or a large amount of data subject rights requests, Deloitte’s Privacy Response Team can help. Immediately! To assist organizations in such situations, the Privacy Team has joined forces with other Deloitte teams specializing in Crisis and Resilience, Forensic and Cyber Incident Response to assist our clients with all the expertise needed when such a situation presents itself. This cross-functional team is always on call to support you, remotely or on site. In addition to providing emergency assistance, they can advise you, train your staff or help you recover ad improve your procedures to be better prepared in the future.
- Privacy by Design
When you are planning new initiatives that involve processing personal data of individuals, you need to take the right to privacy of those individuals into consideration. Doing so from the moment you start designing your solution, is called Privacy by Design (PbD). Compared to addressing privacy after your design is ready and repairing your processes, this saves time and money. Next to that, PbD is mandatory under the GDPR. Deloitte has a solution that integrates PbD into your design processes; we adapt taking care of privacy to your business and design processes, rather than the other way around. The result: your organisation makes the most of its data with cutting-edge technology, while staying fully GDPR compliant.
- Privacy Strategy and Governance
Data protection and privacy legislation sets boundaries for your organization, but does not provide you with a clear direction to move. Setting this direction yourself enables you to make swift, justified and consistent decisions on how your organization uses personal data. This is why strategy is important. We help you assess your stakeholder field, the value and limitations of the personal data you (intend to) process, and a clear path to follow. This includes many perspectives, including ethical, legal and operational decisions you have to make. When you have a clear direction, our experienced team helps you set up a privacy organization to put your vision into practice, including roles, responsibilities, structure and headcount – from high-level view to detailed tasks: putting privacy into practice.
- DPO Lab / CPO Lab
In this service we offer DPOs and CPOs insight into their new role and the responsibilities they wish to take on. We help them formulate their success factors on an organizational, substantive and personal level. This is a great way to gain insight into your role and make it tangible for your colleagues.
- E-Privacy Regulation
The EU will publish an e-Privacy Regulation. This e-Privacy Regulation will replace the current e-Privacy Directive which each EU Member State has implemented into its own law. The timing on the coming into force of the e-Privacy Regulation is not completely clear yet. We will keep you posted on the developments and as experts in the field we can provide up to date advice for your organization.
