From business-critical data to personal information, data breaches & compliance gaps present financial and legal risks that threaten brand and future business viability across all industries.

PCG has been providing data privacy and protection services for over 20 years and brings a wealth of experience and insights to the table.


The global threat environment has intensified resulting in business continuity, disaster recovery, crisis management, and emergency response becoming an area of focus for board of directors, executive leaders, clients, customers, and regulators.  This increased focus has resulted in greater maturity and heightened expectations around response, recovery, and communication capabilities.

Business continuity management identifies these potential threats and impacts to your business, creates the organizational resilience and recovery capabilities for an appropriate level of response, and safeguards the interests of your customers, employees, reputation, and value.   Potential threats include items such as natural disasters, technological failures, data breaches, human error, fire, terrorism, lawsuits, misconduct, acts of violence, labor action, or drop in share price.

There are multiple components encompassing a robust business continuity program, in addition to several ancillary items such as event/incident management, disaster recovery, crisis management, and emergency response. The terminology used within industries, by regulations, and across vendors is inconsistent at best, so we recommend focusing on the components rather than debating the nomenclature.  Below are the components.

Data protection is about securing data through a variety of means to ensure it stays with those who are explicitly authorized to have it, while data privacy deals with the transparency of how data is used and defines who has access to it. Due to an everchanging environment of innovative technologies and regulatory requirements, data protection & privacy is a matter of maturity for every organization; there is no ‘finish-line.’

Focusing on protection and privacy for your company’s data must be a top a priority for every business and technology leader. Companies today are more vulnerable than ever. Not just from malicious actors and their often-sophisticated technologies, but also from incidental breaches perpetrated by employees – often completely by accident! Data breaches and compliance issues can cost companies millions from fines and other penalties, not including potential negative impacts to brand recognition and future business viability. 

There is no ‘silver bullet’ to data protection & privacy, but the companies that do it best understand the importance of following a risk-based plan for continuous improvement and maturity to balance their risk against technical, business & organizational demands. In many cases regulatory requirements apply, but where they don’t, leading practices with regard to the critical components of Data Protection & Privacy serve to differentiate the mature data protectors from the immature.
