Website, Program and Technology Analysis-
Privacy by design is a concept whereby from the initial stage of processing personal information, privacy mechanisms are established. Applying our years of privacy experience we will evaluate every component of your organization that may be in scope of privacy regulations:

Website :
This includes the appraisal of every element pertaining to your website. A general risk assessment will be performed for every aspect of information handling within your organization. The review will ensure the privacy disclosures as well as terms and conditions are up to the highest industry standards.

Further, with your help, we will learn the tracking mechanisms on your site and work with our technology team to present the appropriate banner, if necessary, when entering your site. Additionally, we will draft an appropriate cookies notice.



Program: We will help you launch a long-term program that works so your organization will operate within the appropriate privacy process for your needs. We can craft or assist with hands on training of employees. We will draft an internal privacy policy based on our understanding of the data processing protocol within your company and of course, correct inappropriate handling processes, as they arise.

We will perform risk assessments on high risk data uses and implement a governance structure for both personnel and data. Our team will craft a breach preparedness and response protocol including war rooms and tabletop exercises.

Our Privacy team has led many projects that entail cross-border transfers and the laws of virtually every jurisdiction including system registration processes, as needed. It would be our pleasure to use our proficiency around the old Safe Harbor process and the new Privacy Shield Process to comply with that mechanism.

Data subject access requests with its corresponding data mapping is something which is perhaps the most crucial, and frequently mishandled, facet of GDPR and CCPA compliance.

We assess algorithms and understand diagnostic as well as predictive analytics and are able partners to help you achieve your framework so as not to break the law.

Our firm motto is “deal-makers, not deal breakers”. We want you to use technology to monetize data and we do our best to put up exactly what is required by law. Whether the data is social media, healthcare, financial, credit reporting, even children’s data or virtually any area of information, our specialists have prior practice.
