OUR BELIEFS

We believe that...

We believe that diversity of backgrounds and experience leads to the best outcomes. We also believe that putting the control over data in the hands of the individual is the right thing to do. We are a company comprised of privacy professionals, CISOs, and CPOs. We are also CTOs, CIOs, and software engineers. We believe that companies that spend hours trying to achieve compliance miss the opportunity to build customer confidence. We help organizations use data privacy to strengthen their brand. Start with the right Ethos, and the customer will follow.

Our clients are Fortune 500 enterprises and leaders in their industries. They believe in putting their customer first and protecting personal data above all else. We offer both expert consulting and privacy technology giving these companies ultimate flexibility and the ability to apply the right solution at the right time. Our consultants and privacy analysts infuse their deep experience into our software. The Ethos Privacy Confidence Platform is data privacy software designed by privacy professionals for privacy professionals.

We "mind the gap"

We start with the business context when evaluating the application of data privacy regulations. Our privacy professionals partner with clients to find the right balance between privacy goals and business needs. We have the expertise to bridge the gap between current state and optimal state given the pace and complexity of privacy legislation around the globe.

We provide the expertise and tooling necessary for organizations to move beyond mere compliance-based privacy programs to reposition data privacy as a strategic differentiator. At the core of this mission is a desire to help your organization innovate and thrive based on trusted, data-driven relationships.

 

Minding the gap between current and optimal states of privacy.

Course of Action Assessment (CoAA)

Our holistic approach to privacy helps organizations efficiently develop and maintain optimized privacy programs with all the right performance metrics in place. As a first step, we often recommend an Ethos Privacy Risk Assessment to help identify weaknesses in data privacy compliance and protection efforts. From there, we can prioritize actions delivering the most benefit.

Ethos Privacy brings the expertise, tools, and outside perspective necessary to analyze and understand a company’s current state and design an achievable roadmap to reach the desired future state.

Impact

Our Ethos Privacy Risk Assessment delivers immediate critical knowledge by analyzing and assessing privacy risks arising from the processing of personal information. This includes risk models, risk assessment methodologies, and approaches to determining privacy risk factors.

Identify critical gaps

This baseline provides a way to identify and mitigate privacy-related risks and ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.

Uncover opportunities

We can help make privacy an embedded process for your organization. We specialize in helping stakeholders understand that data privacy is a strategic priority for the business and that effectively managing privacy-related changes ensures that privacy commitments to customers are honored and trust is maintained.

Process improvement

We provide an efficient, cost effective and repeatable process in place to evaluate the effectiveness of the current assessment.

Realize value quickly

We identify actionable quick wins to implement immediately either after or during the assessment.
