BCCS (Blockchain Cybersecurity and Compliance Solutions) Cluster has formed a new partnership with GRC (Governance, Risk Management and Compliance) experts – Privacy Partners. Privacy Partners is a group of experienced IT, Legal, and Project management experts with a data protection profile. Their target audience ranges from data-rich startups to company groups of 80+ companies operating across EU and non-EU countries and the main focus of is to help companies meet ever more demanding GRC requirements with a particular focus on EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements. The company considers the need to empower its customers to achieve business value growth through data privacy as its core mission.

“The Fintech sector is probably the fastest-growing field in Lithuania. In the initial stages of operation, the main focus is usually the core business areas, leaving information security and privacy issues neglected, which may result in them failing to keep pace with key business systems and processes, thus perpetuating hidden risks. It often leads to the risks being assessed too late and post-factum, as safety issues are among the most sensitive in the financial services sector. Compliance, privacy and security are complex issues that need to be addressed in an integrated way and embedded in business processes rather than create additional barriers.“Martynas Bieliūnas, Managing Partner and Founder, Privacy Partners

Privacy Partners has a purpose to help businesses reliably achieve objectives, address uncertainty and act with integrity. The company focuses on identifying the problems, preparing the road map of the actions that need to be taken, and partnering with the best-suited field players to help customers accomplish their goals in the most effective, safe, and comprehensive way. According to Privacy Partners, their ability to do so depends on their team members having a solid foundation in developing GRC solutions that meet individual needs. Privacy Partners’ expert network includes people specializing in GDPR compliance, Cloud and IT Security architecture and IT projects management.

“We have assembled a team of professionals who are well versed in both technological and legal aspects. Not only does this allow for the proper management of IT and privacy/data protection processes, but also the existence of expert-level data protection officers since all aspects of security and privacy need to be addressed from Privacy by Design to employee training. We have noticed that the chosen direction is also recognized at the EU level as we are currently implementing an EU-funded project and developing a DPO (Data Protection Officer) platform in the cloud.”Martynas Bieliūnas, Managing Partner and Founder, Privacy Partners

The company strongly believes that to spread solutions even further it is important to share and exchange knowledge. This is one of the reasons for the partnership between Privacy Partners and BCCS Cluster.

“Being in a group with innovative and progressive companies makes it possible to come up with completely innovative solutions that one company cannot beat. We hope to be at the forefront of fintech innovation and we are ready to share our knowledge and experience. The orientation of the cluster towards business opportunities and real activities, which is not always possible in branch business associations, is also positively predisposed.” – Martynas Bieliūnas, Managing Partner and Founder, Privacy Partners
