Official Release

CHICAGO (Nov. 19, 2019) - Leading advisory, tax and assurance firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) announces a partnership with data privacy management software provider CENTRL. Leveraging CENTRL's Privacy360 integrated privacy program management platform, Baker Tilly will deliver a powerful privacy compliance solution tailored to specific regulatory needs, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), to help clients track and manage privacy compliance, reduce ongoing operational burdens and build a solid foundation for responding to emerging privacy challenges.

"With the rise in privacy regulation and data protection policies evolving across the globe, organizations face more complex compliance, legal, financial, third party, reputational and activism risks," Baker Tilly Principal and Privacy Practice Leader David Ross said. "Our partnership with CENTRL helps us give our clients greater control and oversight of data privacy regulatory compliance requirements and supports a sound privacy management program that can address current and emerging risks now, for tomorrow."

Organizations taking advantage of Baker Tilly and CENTRL's partnership will benefit from:

  • Scoping assessments - Assess data privacy practices across the organization against industry-specific and regulatory requirements
  • Data inventories - Conduct data inventorying, with automated production and management of data maps, business processes and data protection impact assessments
  • Individual rights management - Monitor, triage, track and respond to individual rights requests with templates to support workflow, communication and management
  • Vendor management - Evaluate and track vendor relationships, processing activities and due diligence
  • Management of multiple regulations - Manage and monitor not just GDPR and CCPA, but the more than 20 additional pending state and international regulations through one partnership and platform

CENTRL's founder and CEO Sanjeev Dheer said, "With the upcoming CCPA deadline in January 2020, companies are confronted with the challenge of establishing the processes and infrastructure for complying with the new law.
