"Innovations in technology, big data, IoT and artificial intelligence are fuelled by massive collection and use of personal data," said Kabir Barday, OneTrust CEO and Fellow of Information Privacy (FIP). "Significant breaches of trust in this ecosystem have brought both consumers and regulators globally to the table demanding more transparency, choice, and accountability from organizations with respect to how to handle personal data. The GDPR created a forcing function for organizations to undertake significant operational reform to provide this transparency and choice, and a ripple effect globally resulting in countries like Brazil, India, Japan and many others following with similar requirements. As companies must comply with a growing list of privacy regulations, OneTrust has become the strategic solution of choice globally to implement the transparency, choice and accountability required to comply with these regulations. We are proud to support our customers with the largest dedicated team and most widely used technology in the privacy industry."
