Privacy and Data Trust

The global data protection and privacy landscape is changing at rapid speed. Whether it’s proposed new privacy regulations, increasing data breach fines, criteria for privacy certifications, responding to consumer expectations or preparing for emerging technologies, there are many reasons for organizations to seriously think about the way they collect, process and protect data while building data trust.

What EY can do for you

Our Privacy & Data Trust services not only help organizations comply with privacy regulations around the world, but they also enable value generation through the transformation of data risk into data trust. This trust is a prerequisite for enabling emerging technologies in the digital economy like open banking (consumer finance), artificial intelligence and the effective management of digital identities.

EY Privacy & Data Trust services and solutions are designed to help companies protect information over the full data lifecycle, from acquisition to disposal.

EY Privacy & Data Trust services aim to empower organizations to avert costly data breaches and reduce risks of non-compliance that could result in fines from regulators. But, more important, they help create value by building data trust, which gains consumer trust and leads to brand trust.

We help organizations find effective ways to operationalize privacy programs that not only comply with privacy regulations but look for value generation for key stakeholders. In addition, through our digital academy, we can equip your team with key digital skills and capabilities to tackle privacy challenges and thrive in a dynamic data trust future.
