In the beginning, when we recognized the need for a structured privacy program, we looked at TrustArc to help us start from the top down. We are avid users of Operational Templates. It is our most widely used module. It is essentially used to approach different parts of the business. We are able to review our organizational policies and procedures while we add privacy controls to the review. Overall, we are happy with TrustArc and we see them as a partner through the maturity of our privacy program.

-Large Information & Internet Services Company, Privacy Leader

My team is a huge advocate for TrustArc. When our company was rethinking putting up security cameras within the company. The Operational Templates module was used as a reference point and really helped in running the entire process smoothly. This module has helped us more on a case to case scenario rather than on a daily basis.
