Measuring data privacy effectiveness

Good data privacy is a point of real difference for an organization. But how do you show that your data privacy function is doing a good job? How do you assess your privacy maturity and performance in the absence of a reference baseline? This is where we can help.

Our benchmarking service provides an unbiased and independent measure of data privacy effectiveness and determines whether appropriate controls have been implemented to ensure compliance with data protection legislation and regulation.

The output is a comprehensive report that includes practical recommendations for improvement and remediation. 

If your organization could benefit from having an enhanced appreciation of your position in the world of data privacy, read on to learn more about what we provide and how it works.

How does it work?

Our flexible and adaptable service can be tailored to the specific needs of your organization. 

Data gathering

We draw on a variety of sources to build a comprehensive view of compliance, best practice and the potential for future enhancements, not only to your organization’s privacy programme but also to your core activities. 

Measurement criteria

We use a variety of privacy metrics (see above) and work with you to ensure we select the appropriate axes for your organization. 

Tightly defined scope

To deliver better clarity and focus and deeper insight (and manage costs), we recommend concentrating initially on one area of your business. We help determine the most relevant and appropriate area.

Resource requirement

The benchmarking exercise demands minimal engagement from key internal stakeholders, and this resource requirement is agreed at the outset.
