The Easier Way to Measure Your Compliance With International Privacy Laws
Managing compliance with one set of data privacy regulations can be challenging enough, but as a growing, international business, you’re quickly finding that staying on top of different laws for every operational region takes that challenge to a whole new level.
Without proper planning and effective management, the journey towards compliance can become so complicated that some processes are unnecessarily duplicated while others are overlooked altogether.
The result is not only a drain on your physical and financial resources but also potential privacy risks that could cost your organisation in the long run.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Delivering a complete 360° view of your compliance, the Relentless Global Privacy Maturity Assessment helps you to take stock, take control, and take action to simplify and streamline your data protection measures.
In doing so, your organisation is better equipped to create an efficient, cost-effective global privacy program that helps you minimise risk and maximise the value of your data while improving compliance with major regulations like GDPR, HIPAA, PDPA and more.

Why Choose the Relentless Global Privacy Maturity Model?
Maturity models are a tried-and-trusted method of measuring an organisation’s progress against specific, established benchmarks.
With regards to privacy, they recognise the value of making progress and help organisations identify the benefit of each step they take towards complete compliance.
They also prove invaluable in helping organisations like yours identify areas where achieving a maximum maturity level may not be necessary, helping you to free up resources that could be better invested in more critical areas.
At Relentless, we use our global privacy maturity model to help your organisation:
1: Gain a clear understanding of your current compliance status
2: Identify and remediate privacy risks
3: Identify how data privacy can help you achieve your primary business objectives
4: Create a streamlined privacy program to improve compliance with multiple international regulations.

We asked Robert to come in and do an audit for us in the lead up the introduction of PDPA in Thailand. He spent a week with us and was forensic in his approach. His report has left us a lot to think about and act upon. Compared to other firms offering the same thing, the price was very reasonable and they have experience in the SE Asia market, so the advice is refreshingly specific rather than generic. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Relentless Privacy Services. Dr T. J. Jefferis, Second Master
