Secure personal information and reduce the risk of a data breach by improving your data privacy management practices.
The landscape of cyber threats and data privacy regulation are both rapidly evolving. And the fines for businesses that fall behind on compliance are often steep. On the higher end, they can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars—or tap a percentage of your annual revenue. These penalties alone can seriously harm a company’s prospects. Combined with the cost of a data breach, they can be devastating.
Colume Data Privacy Services help you find and protect the sensitive information your business collects, transmits and retains so you can reduce the risk of exposing personal information or breaking compliance rules related to data privacy.
We help you understand industry regulations, including:
We’ll also map how data travels across your organization and offer advice on how to fill any data protection or compliance gaps.
Our experts bring an in-depth understanding of the latest attacks and how to defend against them, and can help your teams change the way they work to keep sensitive information safe. Colume consultants can help you prioritize improvements that will protect your company’s reputation—and its bottom line.

Being a good steward of sensitive data starts with learning what you don’t know. Your company may have personal information that has been lost or forgotten—or employees whose habits are putting data at risk. Colume’s comprehensive assessments shine a light on potential issues by following data flows, evaluating your company’s operational environment, processes and documentation, and considering the third-party partners that have access to personal data. Using this information, we will help you create a structured plan to prioritize key risks, incorporate privacy-by-design into the planning process, and drive continual improvement of your compliance and data protection programs.

Colume consultants have experience helping businesses of all sizes create and implement governance processes that help protect sensitive information.

Our risk mitigation recommendations will make it easier for your staff to keep your company’s private data safe.
