PrivacyEngine™ (formerly Sytorus) is the leading Data Privacy solution and services provider for organisations in retail, hospitality, not for profit, medical / clinical research, financial services, local government, and governmental agencies.
Founded in 2013, PrivacyEngine has developed a Privacy Management Platform, that helps hundreds of companies demonstrate compliance with global privacy regulations. Privacy Engine’s SaaS privacy management platform, combined with their consultancy services, provide a complete solution for managing all aspects of a privacy program. The PrivacyEngine platform encapsulates everything needed for GDPR, CCPA or HIPAA compliance.
Based out of Ireland, PrivacyEngine has a global customer base. Personal data is everywhere. We are now in a global regulatory environment; 65% of the global population will be under ‘GDPR’ like regulation by 2023, up from only 10% in 2020. This has resulted in a massive increase in privacy teams and the need for PrivacyEngine to continue to expand to meet that demand. In late 2018, PrivacyEngine secured €1.7 million in investment from Private Equity and Venture Capital firm Kernel Capital who are part of Bank of Ireland.
The Head of Consulting position was a key hire for PrivacyEngine. The Head of Consulting would have full ownership of the consulting business and accountability for growing this business in a profit driven manner, while building out the team.
This was a hugely exciting time to join PrivacyEngine as the market continues to grow at a rapid rate. The Data Protection market which includes the Privacy Management Platform (PMP) space, and all consultancy, assessments and training, is approaching €60 billion with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) for the next five years estimated at 30%. This means that PrivacyEngine has an enormous and growing market to chase.
Our job as search partners to PrivacyEngine was to identify the best talent and educate and promote the opportunity within this high growth business to the talent pool.
