UNITED BY A COMMON PURPOSE
We help organizations change the way they process personal data to protect the people behind the data.
WHY IS THIS SO IMPORTANT TO US?
With companies systematically gathering, analyzing and selling personal data to facilitate, optimize or run their businesses, the awareness around data protection has drastically changed: our data is private and belongs to us.
And it’s worth protecting. Big organizations across the world are slowly understanding that we are entering a new era. In addition, strict data privacy regulations such as the GDPR or the CCPA have been introduced to help protect people’s personal data. Not complying with these, can entail reputational damage, customer churn and heavy fines. But these shouldn’t be the primary arguments for data protection. If you think about a company merely being the accumulation of the individuals working there, data privacy concerns us all. Consequently, all companies should base their business on the transparent and respectful use of personal data. We at DataGuard help them.
NOBODY EMBARKS ON A JOURNEY UNLESS THEY CARE ABOUT SOMETHING.
about data protection and the people behind the data. We consider the privacy of data to be an inviolable human right and our ambition is to enable organizations to achieve sustainable compliance in order to easily and efficiently protect each person’s privacy.
WE BUILD BRIDGES
not only between the complex privacy regulations, regulatory authorities and affected organizations, but also between the many different individuals with diverse backgrounds working together to perfectly connect high quality human expertise and state of the art technology.
WE ADD VALUE
by empowering businesses across the globe to focus on their core competencies and improving their processes, consequently strengthening customer trust and making privacy compliance their competitive advantage.
WE CONQUER PEAKS
by venturing into new, uncharted territory opposing the unregulated and untransparent use of people’s data. In order to make a considerable impact and to change the common perception as personal data not being a product that can be used or sold at will, we firmly stand together in paving the path to a better future.
WE CREATE TRUST
as a reliable partner, who not only talks but also leads by example. Transparency is paramount for the success of our mission and to strengthen our culture on the inside, as well as to form close relationships with authorities, organizations and people on the outside.
