Ethisis is a boutique data privacy consultancy created for the Middle East. Our team of data privacy professionals includes experts in global data privacy transformation, improvement, and implementation. We combine deep legal, technical, and operational expertise to deliver innovative strategic support to address data risk and evolving privacy compliance obligations. We employ a proven framework to identify and understand issues, prioritize business needs, and develop and deploy custom solutions to address your most critical data risks.
We will work with you to assess your organization’s current data privacy posture and maturity level and deliver workable and sustainable remediation recommendations. We take care to ensure that our recommendations align with your ambitions, risk posture, compliance obligations, budget, and digital transformation priorities.
Ethisis’ data privacy experts work closely with your stakeholders to implement or improve a sustainable data privacy program, across any type of governance model, based on your unique requirements, goals, and objectives. If your organization is looking to scale or optimize an existing data privacy program, we are here to help. Whether by way of technology implementation, automation of current processes, or the upskilling of your team, we can help you select and implement the tools your organization needs to uplift privacy maturity.
We understand that compliance is a journey and not a destination. Ethisis’ data privacy experts can help you get the most out of your investment in privacy and maintain the effectiveness of your privacy program in the long term.
Whether it be supporting data protection impact assessments, assessing third-party service providers, handling data subject requests, or responding to a data breach, we are here to help you maintain the effectiveness of your privacy program.
We can support your Data Protection Officer (‘DPO’) or assume the role of DPO for you, by designing a flexible support model that fits your organization's unique challenges and goals. We can also perform the role of DPO for an interim period while working with you to identify, train, and establish a permanent DPO.
Our team can be engaged remotely, in person, or through a hybrid delivery model.
The first step in addressing the risks of rapidly evolving global AI regulations is to implement a Responsible AI (‘RAI’) framework. RAI is an approach to innovation that combines AI initiatives with ethical principles, to create a strategic framework that is aligned with your business objectives, as well as the ethical values of your organization.
With our RAI Maturity and Gap Assessment, we will help your organization assess current maturity levels, as they relate to emerging national, regional, and industry regulations, and global best practices. We will help you to create a prioritized roadmap of actions, that will facilitate a smooth glide path towards both ethical and compliant AI technology development or adoption.
Waiting to see how AI regulations are established and enforced is not an effective strategy. As is the case with AI technology itself, AI regulations will continue to evolve very rapidly, and will typically lag innovation and new use cases.
Ethisis will help you to make the transition from boardroom or leadership ambitions, to the operationalization of a strategic RAI framework. The implementation and optimization of a principled ethical RAI framework, upheld by clear governance and accountability, will position your organization to mitigate compliance risks, accelerate digital transformations, and build a trusted relationship with customers and partners.
Our team will help your organization maintain your RAI framework’s effectiveness, to ensure you can adhere to ethical AI policies, mature your culture of responsible data use, identify and mitigate AI system risks quickly, and continue to deploy ethical AI that maintains the trust of your customers and partners.
In an era of global environmental challenges, increasing regulatory scrutiny, and heightened customer expectations, environmental social and governance (ESG) practices are becoming a top priority for leadership teams and more than just a compliance obligation.
Recognizing the importance of ESG, we help our clients develop their approach to meet growing requirements and expectations for social and environmental equity. We will support you along the path toward a more conscientious future, by developing an integrated approach toward your ESG goals, however big or small.
Whether the objective is regulatory compliance, adhering to voluntary policies that support organizational values, meeting investor standards, contractual obligations, or enhancing customer trust and brand reputation, we will work with you to understand your obligations, identify strengths and weaknesses, and assess your ESG maturity.
We benchmark our findings against industry frameworks and best practices and leverage our insights to develop tailored strategies to help minimize risk, whilst capitalizing on opportunities for positive impact.
A wait-and-see approach is no longer an option for boardrooms or leadership teams. In the growing landscape of ESG standards and regulations, we help clients implement pragmatic ESG programs based on their unique needs and ambitions, bridging gaps in compliance, and improving existing policies and processes.
We mobilize our expertise to develop your organizational strengths toward ethical, sustainable practices, helping to ensure the long-term performance of your organization’s ESG program.
We can support the maturity of your organization’s ESG program beyond tick-box compliance, and negate the impression of greenwashing, to drive transformative change and ensure you are meeting sustainability targets and ambitions.
We can help you meet transparency and reporting obligations or conduct life cycle analyses to assess the ESG impacts and risks associated with new and existing products and processes. We can also support third-party sustainability assessments, and help you integrate ethical and sustainable thinking into procurement processes, to embed sustainability across your entire supply chain.
