PrivacyWorks plays a key role helping organizations of all shapes and sizes navigate complex privacy issues.

PrivacyWorks has a singular, clear mission – to provide our clients with information privacy solutions that meet their business requirements. Whether you work in healthcare, government, technology or even as a start-up, we have a full suite of privacy solutions to meet your needs and budget.

Like many other consulting firms, we started small. When PrivacyWorks was launched in 2013 (and even more so today) we believed that organizations that treat their privacy programs as instrumental to their success, rather than as an obstacle, are better positioned to thrive. By keeping to this simple principle, we have grown alongside our clients and continue to use privacy as a way for organizations to build scalable business models, to adapt to their own clients’ needs and to gain a competitive advantage in the market.

The PrivacyWorks team includes associates with broad business analytics backgrounds and extensive privacy expertise.  We are known for our service excellence and intend to maintain our track record for delivering to high standards.  For us, quality is everything.
