Privacy by design is at the heart of every data-driven project

The law requires organisations to ensure from the very start of a project that data will be protected by design and by default. It means project teams need to consider the risks, privacy and information security features associated with design choices from the very beginning.

We offer award-winning privacy by design training and services, and can work alongside your project team to help it get privacy right.

We can train your project and development teams to incorporate privacy by design requirements into projects in a way that complies with the law and improves the projects.
