TrustArc’s Nymity Awareness Tracker Enables Privacy Knowledge Across Entire Business

November 20, 2019 GMT

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 20, 2019--

TrustArc, the leading privacy automation and intelligence platform provider, today announces major updates to Nymity Awareness Tracker, the first compliance solution on the market to streamline contextual privacy awareness across an entire business. Privacy legislation such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe and the upcoming California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the US have elevated the visibility of privacy professionals in the corporate world. However, many still feel confused about which privacy rules apply to them and the teams they support. With the Nymity Awareness Tracker, employees can hone in on areas of legislation that are relevant to their role and location and receive tailored updates that are easy to understand.

Awareness Tracker provides simple, one-stop access to privacy awareness learning, helping to reduce risk while increasing engagement, knowledge and accountability across an entire organization. With gamification elements designed to make privacy learning fun, its mission is to empower privacy champions at every level of the business.

Key benefits of the Awareness Tracker include:

• The ability to maintain awareness across the organization in a few minutes each week

• Engaging infographics and visuals to support the learning process

• The power to reward Privacy Champions with status as their knowledge improves

• Built in user feedback to continually improve the content relevance by audience

• CPE credits

“Privacy compliance is complex, ever changing and can often seem overwhelming,” said Terry McQuay, TrustArc Vice President, Knowledge & Intelligence Solutions and Founder of Nymity. “Awareness Tracker makes privacy regulations and concepts easy to understand for business units whose primary responsibility is not privacy. Businesses need tools to help their teams navigate the ever-changing privacy legislative landscape. Awareness Tracker helps them do this, allowing businesses to empower Privacy Champions in an engaging and fun way.”
