In cooperation with the management team of Pryv SA, Open Web Technology (OpenWT) launches its Data Privacy Excellence Practice to design digital solutions ensuring the safe collection and use of personal data in full compliance with the Swiss data protection laws and GDPR. This will further support OpenWT’s clients with data protection, privacy and trust-enabling expertise and solutions.
Privacy compliance is an imperative for a successful digital transformation and investments in data privacy are reaching new records. The appetite for the development of data-driven products and services made privacy a first priority for any forward looking business dealing with personal data assets. All market segments offering digital services to consumers are impacted. From Digital Health, to Financial Services, Insurances, Retail, Telecommunications, Manufacturing, Real Estate, eCommerce or Public Services, data privacy should be integrated at the early stage of the design of the digital solutions, to ensure a stronger and more cost-effective protection for personal data privacy.
The OpenWT Data Privacy Excellence Practice comes at a time of a global shortage of data privacy expertise. The OpenWT team brings a strong value proposition to fill the gap and beat the circle of distrust, ensuring not only the regulatory compliance to Swiss data protection laws and GDPR, but upscaling for its clients business opportunities based on modern data-driven product and service offerings.
Bringing distinguished expertise and broad domain experience in data privacy and governance, the co-founders of Pryv SA, Pierre-Mikael Legris & Evelina Georgieva will lead the development of OpenWT Data Privacy Excellence Practice. As part of its corporate development and pivotal time of growth, Pryv SA will continue its full operations, focused on delivering licenses of its proprietary Pryv.io software, while Data Privacy consultancy services will be carried out by the OpenWT Data Privacy Excellence Practice.
