WHY INDICIUM

The "RIGHT TO PRIVACY" was established in 1890 by the US Supreme Court Justice Samuel Warren.  With technology and the increased volume of information, the privacy landscape has expanded, making privacy a business risk.  Traditionally, the responsibility for thinking about privacy has been divided among chief privacy officers with privacy departments, external law firms with privacy practices, large scale consulting firms with privacy groups, and consulting firms with regulatory and compliance solutions.  These developments have caused privacy services to become dysfunctional and commoditized.  This makes the privacy practice ripe for disruption!

Privacy is a mindset  . . . . 

Privacy needs to be infused into the culture and practice of your organization.  When privacy becomes second-nature, not only is your organization’s data protected, but it is also structured in such away as to be thought of as an asset.

Privacy is a strategic approach to your data . . . .

Your organization maintains customer data.  Responsible use of that data is essential to customer trust and competitive advantage.   Unlike traditional firms, Indicium is disrupting off-the-shelf privacy solutions with customized approaches that increase your organization’s ability to use data as an asset.

When issues arise that go beyond those that can be addressed on an everyday basis, Indicium can provide specialized expertise and advisory and consulting services.  With over 30 years of legal and financial services and 10 years of cutting edge privacy experience, the founder of Indicium Lynn Goldstein and her team bring a problem-solving orientation to an organization’s privacy needs.  The financial services industry is one of the world’s most regulated industries and was a fertile learning ground for the applicability and reach of privacy laws.  Lynn’s experience as the Chief Privacy Officer of a Fortune 50 company and the largest U.S. bank garnered her accolades, and she has brought that lauded experience with her to the foundation and establishment of Indicium.  According to Lynn, privacy should no longer be just a compliance matter.  Organizations can and should be proactive in making privacy an integral part of their business and Indicium helps organizations do so.
