Having spent more than two decades building some of the leading customer data platforms, including Krux (acquired by Salesforce) and Rapt (acquired by Microsoft), PrivacyGrader.com co-founders are back to help businesses ensure the personal data they use is secure and compliant amid increasing regulations.
“Using consumer data can be a slippery slope,” explained Tom Chavez, CEO, and co-founder of Ketch. “My team and I have worked in this space for over 20 years, so we get it. That’s why we’re offering this free service to any company because we know how important it is to ensure customer trust and total data compliance. We’re here to handle the intricacies so businesses can stick to what matters, growing their business and helping customers.”
According to the International Association of Privacy Professionals, despite record spending on data privacy and security products in 2020, companies are still racking up massive fines and lawsuits due to a lack of resources and complete follow-through of data policies while leaking confidential information and losing customer trust.
