GEC Risk Advisory and RepRisk launch their Joint Special Report on Privacy


Two of the world’s leaders in risk management – RepRisk and GEC Risk Advisory have collaborated together to author a Special report on Privacy Issues faced by companies. All those who are heavily dependent on technology are the most vulnerable.

GEC Risk Advisory has partnered with RepRisk to author a publication of their Joint Special Report on issues of privacy.
Their Joint Special Report details real world cases studies from across the world addressing a variety of privacy concerns along with analysis on how these will have an impact on the affected companies. The aim of this special report is to highlight areas wherein an increased use of technology has had repercussions on the privacy front affecting not only the obvious, i.e. employees and employers but other stakeholders as well. The aim of this report is to also to draw the attention of the companies to privacy issues arising out of their day-to-day operations.
The Information provided in the reports is a combination of those special skills which are typically attributed to RepRisk and GEC Risk Advisory. While RepRisk - one of the world’s best providers of dynamic data which it generates from big data emanating from environmental social and governance (ESG) risk analyses and metrics -  has provided the data, it has been viewed through the interpretive lens of GEC Risk Advisory.
This is the first of many white papers in which the collaborations between the two giants have alerted companies of privacy concerns.
