We announced our newest partnership with Alibaba Cloud (the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group) at the IAPP Asia Privacy Forum 2017.
As data privacy increases in importance for organizations of all sizes and maturity in Asia, TrustArc saw an opportunity to partner with one of the fastest-growing cloud computing companies in the world. Both TrustArc and Alibaba Cloud believe that as organizations continue to provide excellent experiences for their customers by collecting personal data, keeping up with evolving regulations and protecting data privacy is key. Scaling a privacy program requires using a combination of privacy expertise and technology.
This strategic partnership will bring TrustArc’s privacy compliance technology to Alibaba Cloud’s growing base of customers across Asia and around the world. Alibaba Cloud will be deploying TrustArc’s Data Privacy Management Platform and TRUSTe certification services within its organization to demonstrate compliance across the organization, minimize risk and build trust.
For other organizations, TrustArc is also offering its privacy platform through the Alibaba cloud infrastructure, providing businesses in Asia with a safe and efficient way to manage privacy compliance and risks via Alibaba Cloud’s extensive global network while minimizing the need to transfer information across international borders and any corresponding regulatory requirements.
TrustArc Chris Babel said:
Our partnership with them is an important step in our mission to enhance and streamline privacy compliance on a global basis.
This partnership continues our business application integration partnerships with top Business Intelligence, Governance Risk and Compliance, Help Desk, Human Capital Management, and IT System Management Applications. Examples of those integrations are:
- Conducting privacy assessments in the TrustArc Platform that were triggered from GRC and HCM systems (e.g., Archer, SAP)
- Exporting assessment remediation tasks from theTrustArc Platform into service desk systems (e.g., ServiceNow, JIRA) to track project status
- Importing asset information from IT Service Management systems (e.g., BMC Remedy) to construct data maps for privacy risk analysis in the TrustArc Platform
- Exporting risk assessment results and program metrics from theTrustArc Platform into business intelligence systems (e.g., Crystal Reports, Domo) to produce program accountability reports
