The Future is

E P I C

p

Privacy

Consumers want their personal data to be handled securely and their privacy to be respected – companies want to fuel their businesses with high-quality data from these consumers. That's why regulations like the GDPR have been put in place to ensure consumers can trust businesses and give them the information they want freely.

i

INFOSEC

In InfoSec, it’s not only about protecting personal data, but also company information and reputation, blueprints, knowledge, facilities, and employees. Most companies whose information security has been certified (ISO 27001) can confidently say that they are also privacy compliant, and consequently prove they are secure and trustworthy.

c

COMPLIANCE

Compliance essentially means adhering to applicable laws, regulations, standards and ethical practices. Making Privacy and InfoSec an integral part of a company’s processes are the first steps towards a holistic compliance concept. To make it a success, businesses need to live compliance across all functions and create a cultural shift to get everyone onboard.

Join EPIC and unlock the potential of a holistic PIC approach for your company. Benefit from insights and best practices and get in touch with Europe’s leading PIC experts.
