CSR Thoughts...

CSR agrees with the sentiments of Mark Keddie, CPO at BT, London-based owner of British Telecom when he says “As a global facing business, events like this demonstrate the need to have robust assurance frameworks that can absorb external environmental factors without having a detrimental impact on the privacy of customers or the effectiveness of the business.”  Earning CSR’s Readiness’ Certificate of Completion will show your customers, vendors and employees that you are privacy-ready.
