A principles-based approach to operationalizing your compliance program to a fluid data-privacy regulatory landscape.

Many countries and an increasing number of US states have passed comprehensive privacy legislation. BRG works with clients to achieve compliance with these international privacy regulations, which include the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Brazil’s General Data Protection Law (LGPD), Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), and Korea’s Personal Information Protection Act; the US Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), and Federal Trade Commission Act (FTCA); state privacy laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and Nevada’s Senate Bill 220; and state data-breach notification and data-disposal laws.

Combining our data-privacy principles-based approach and our data-privacy model, we deliver compliant, sustainable privacy programs that not only achieve compliance with GDPR and CCPA but are scalable and flexible enough to grow with your business and keep up with this dynamic area of law. Depending on the needs of your business, BRG can provide advice and support or can serve as your outsourced privacy officer or EU data protection officer, building your program from the ground up and providing ongoing services to fulfill data-subject requests, respond to potential data breaches, and otherwise manage the day-to-day requirements of maintaining compliance.

BRG prides itself on providing intelligence that works. We begin by rolling up our sleeves and mapping your systems and processes that involve personal data, and we work from there to create a right-sized, effective program for your business. Our simple, self-correcting, and sustainable “Discover-Build-Communicate-Evaluate” model can be tailored to your specific business environment.
