In cooperation with the management team of Pryv SA, Open Web Technology (OWT) strengthens its Data Privacy Excellence Practice to further support its clients with a crucial expertise bringing data protection and privacy at the core of digital solution design and development. This unique expertise in Switzerland supports organizations to process personal data securely and in full compliance with the Swiss and European data protection laws (FADP/GDPR).
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 OWT Data Privacy Excellence Practice comes at a time of a global shortage of data privacy expertise. The OWT 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.
The co-founders of Pryv SA, Pierre-Mikael Legris & Evelina Georgieva, are joining OWT on April 1st as Associate Partners. They bring a distinguished expertise and broad domain experience in data privacy & governance and will lead the development of OWT's Data Privacy Excellence practice. All Data Privacy consultancy services will be carried out by the practice, while Pryv SA will continue its operations, focusing on delivering licenses of its proprietary Pryv.io software.
