Privacy, confidentiality and cyber security

Privacy
We align our privacy programmes with leading accountability practices for data-protection compliance. We work closely with the Deloitte Global Privacy and the Deloitte Global Public Policy and Regulatory teams to monitor new privacy developments affecting our clients and our firm. We also continually review available mechanisms to better facilitate and safeguard data transfers.

Confidentiality
We are dedicated to continually improving how we safeguard client confidential information and internal information about our people and operations. We work with the Deloitte Global Confidentiality team to shape a globally consistent approach. Our confidentiality leaders use a variety of strategies – for example, maturity assessments, cutting-edge technology, communication and training – to consciously shape a culture in which every Deloitte professional feels a sense of ownership in their role of protecting confidential information.

Cyber security
The risk of a malicious cyber attack or breach of security is an area of considerable focus. Such an event could result in Deloitte’s data, or that of our clients, being lost, corrupted or disclosed to unauthorised parties, or it could prevent the firm from doing business as normal. The firm has implemented a process of monitoring, review and continuous improvement in response to this growing risk.
