Data Protection Roadmap

Technical privacy strategies that future-proof AI startups.  

The Story

You are a lean startup developing edge, wearable, or transportation devices that are AI or voice-enabled.  Reputation and trust are vital for the adoption of your products so that consumers accept your internet-enabled or speech-controlled devices in their homes, cars, or on their bodies.  

The Problem:

  • Your startup doesn't have a full-time data protection expert, but decisions you make now about your tech stack will influence your ability to scale.  
  • With ever-changing regulations and requirements, you aren't sure how privacy laws will impact feature decisions.
  • You want to communicate to your users that you care about privacy but don't want to scare them or build options they don't want. 
  • When you partner with larger companies, they want privacy assurances but it is unclear what they need.

The Solution:

We work with tech startups to strategize a data protection program.  The Data Protection Roadmap will help startups communicate and align with stakeholders on how to build compliance into the tech stack.  

Our roadmap service includes: 

  • A strategy for scalable and lean privacy by design that offers a prioritized way to future-proof your company.
  • Alignment between company stakeholders on what data protection elements provide the most value. 

The Data Protection Roadmap is designed to be a quick turnaround and low-cost option for startups that provides a bespoke strategy.  

We can then help you implement the roadmap with services tailored to your needs.  We focus on helping startups create human-led processes that enable data-driven decisions.  We also offer internal training, user studies, or vulnerability testing.
