Gartner CoolVendor

2B Advice has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors in Privacy Management, 2014” published by IT advisory firm Gartner Inc. “Cool Vendors” are defined by Gartner as companies that offer innovative and impactful products and services in key technology areas.

Why Cool?

Privacy software 2B Advice PrIME combines the experience gained by 2B Advice in numerous mandates as external data privacy officers. The software is a cloud-based technology making data accessible via any web-enabled device; a hosted solution is optional. 2B Advice PrIME is able to clearly model complex organizational structures, provides support with regard to documenting data flows, tracking policies, performing privacy impact assessments, running audits, and defining the necessary technical and organizational measures. The software provides data privacy officers with any assistance to manage the requirements of ISO 27001, HIPPA, CalOPPA, and FTC Consent Decrees. The audit feature for evaluating the data privacy processes (thousands of audit questions are pre-installed) together with the web-based training module for inexpensively increasing employee awareness meet every requirement of modern corporate data privacy.

Our Opinion:

“We are delighted to be included in the Gartner list. We believe it is a validation of our efforts to ensure that our consulting services and software cover all areas of data privacy for companies of all sizes and in all industries,” says Marcus Belke, president at 2B Advice LLC (New York) and managing director of the 2B Advice group. He adds: “It’s cool to be a cool vendor!”
