Security Executive Council Enters Strategic Alliance with DataGuidance
July 22, 2009, Washington, DC—The Security Executive Council, a risk mitigation research and services organization for senior security and risk executives, and DataGuidance, provider of services aimed at simplifying data protection and privacy compliance, have entered into a strategic alliance that will benefit both their constituencies.
DataGuidance has built an extensive, searchable, international database of legislation, official guidance and codes of practice relating to data protection and privacy. The company also provides expert analysis of the issues in countries all around the world. “Like all of the Security Executive Council’s strategic alliance partners, DataGuidance is a one-of-a-kind provider of services critical to corporations and corporate security executives,” said Bob Hayes, Managing Director of the Security Executive Council.
Security executives within and outside the Council community have voiced a need for assistance identifying and understanding security regulations and legislation, including privacy compliance. That’s why the Council maintains a growing list of primarily U.S. laws, regulations, and voluntary compliance items, as well as the unique Regulation and Compliance Management Tool. “Our new alliance with DataGuidance significantly expands the knowledge base and resource base we can offer to members of the Council community,” said Hayes.
Lindsey Greig, Managing Editor of DataGuidance, said: “DataGuidance combines privacy expertise and technological innovation with editorial excellence to produce a global privacy compliance tool that matches the challenge of a global marketplace. We look forward to working with the Security Executive Council to assist companies and organisations develop best practices which place the protection of customer data and privacy at the heart of their activities.”
