The massive Equifax data breach of 2017 hit home for us. And, our founder DV Dronamraju, launched extensive research on data breach prevention technologies, tools, processes, and business risk assessment. The result is a white paper published in 2018 titled ‘Free the world of data breaches‘. And this became our mission and passion. We proposed that businesses should adopt security and privacy as a value. One key tenet of this white paper is that businesses shall include, in their agreements, a covenant to prevent theft of personal information and confidential information. This triggers a network effect, that results in a world free of data breaches.
Meanwhile, in June 2018 Sacramento, lawmakers started working on consumer privacy, and California Consumer Privacy Act was signed into law later voters approved an updated California Privacy Rights Act. The team can now realize its mission by promoting privacy and security compliance.
