Privacy compliance

Privacy compliance refers to the adherence to laws, regulations, and standards governing the protection of individuals’ personal information.

Achieving privacy compliance not only mitigates legal risks but also fosters trust with stakeholders by demonstrating a commitment to respecting individuals’ privacy rights and maintaining the confidentiality and security of their personal information.
