Privacy

Keeping your data safe.

The key to protecting your data lies in a strategic combination of people, process and technology. 

Privacy is fundamental to ensuring an organisation is sufficiently protected from any breach. Not only this, but the modern customer is more aware of both their rights, and what happens when their information gets into the wrong hands.

People

Your workforce need to know how to complete their daily functions in a way that doesn’t expose your customers to unnecessary risk from mistakes and social engineering. We’re all human, but the right knowledge can make a huge difference.

Processes

Data flows across organisations are more complicated than ever before and the processes that enable it need to be watertight. We’ve all heard of large spreadsheets full of customer data being emailed around.

What happens if the email address is mistyped, or it autocompletes to someone completely different? Does the email even contain the most up to date information about these customers? What happens when the information is no longer needed?

At Purple, we document and improve processes inclusive of the data that’s involved in them, not just separately. Only then can an organisation truly appreciate the movement of information across their organisation and establish governance around it.

Technology

Cyber security practices are rapidly evolving alongside the equally as rapid evolution of the modern workplace. However, privacy can leverage the use of technology also, with the use of role based access control and identity access management, you can ensure only the data that is needed, is presented. Considering the GDPR, privacy by design is the default standard organisations should be working towards.
