Washington-based cybersecurity advisory firm, MorganFranklin Consulting LLC has reportedly allied with data privacy firm Nymion to offer advanced data privacy and cybersecurity solutions to clients in Montreal and across Quebec in Canada.
This alliance will provide a wide variety of solutions for data privacy & security and provide enhanced consumer protection under Quebec’s Bill 64. For the record, this bill requires private and public sectors to modernize personal information protection & privacy rights.
Moreover, this regulation gives citizens full control of their personal information, thus aligning the province with other Canadian data privacy laws. Organizations violating this policy are likely to face fines of up to USD 25 million or 4% of their global income for the preceding fiscal year. Meanwhile, individuals affected by a data breach are entitled to receive at least USD 1500 as compensation.
Managing Director of MorganFranklin Consulting’s cybersecurity vertical, Michael Welch reportedly said that organizations usually focus on one aspect of security, leaving the remaining parts of their business vulnerable. This collaboration will provide previously untapped services and empower the user base to protect their systems & data in an optimum manner, he added.
Andrew Philippakis, the Managing Partner at Nymion was quoted saying that the partnership will enable the company to fulfill its commitment of offering best-in-class products with cradle-to-compliance turnkey solutions.
As a part of this alliance, the companies will deliver advanced technologies, data privacy strategies, and delivery solutions. The combined services will also include architectural IT designs, compliance assessments, integrations, and deployments.
Notably, demand for such services has risen greatly in the Quebec market. The collaboration will benefit Canadian companies by providing them access to localized subject matter experts and state-of-the-art technologies, helping them to develop programs to protect client and employee information in a better manner.
