Our Approach
to Privacy

Privacy’s about people

At its heart, privacy is about people. It’s about protecting individual dignity and autonomy, by giving people control and meaningful choices over their information. We support our clients to measure their practices against both their legal obligations and community expectations, using transparency to build trust.

Privacy’s an enabler

We take a risk-based, pragmatic approach to delivering our services. We don’t create barriers, we offer solutions that reflect our clients’ risk appetites, enabling change and innovation.

Privacy should be baked in

We apply the principles of Privacy by Design to our work. Privacy works best if it’s considered early, embedded into the design of processes, products or services, delivered in a way that supports business goals, and focuses on the people behind the data.

There’s more to privacy than the law

Rapid tech change makes it difficult for privacy laws to keep up. We offer a range of frameworks to help our clients stay on track, and we’re always watching the horizon for new privacy issues.
