Safeguarding Your Data Is Our Top Priority

We understand and respect the privacy of our clients and partners. Keeping personal information private, safe, and secure are business imperatives.

How Does Cognician Keep Data Secure?

Cognician safeguards all data of our clients and partners. Naturally, this includes all Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and all confidential data. Privacy and security are a keystone in all areas of our business. From our leadership through to every member of our team, every individual has an active role to play.

All individuals and teams are supported by significant strategic and operational cybersecurity investments, and by a cybersecurity-aware mindset and culture program. This runs continuously, thanks to our Chief Information Security Officer and dedicated Compliance team. Crucially, all of this embeds an understanding that privacy and security are everyone’s responsibility. We are all guided by the principles and practices held within the the GDPR and ISO/IEC 27001 standards.

Cognician's Commitment
Towards Data Privacy

As part of our obligation, we aim to ensure data privacy protection by enabling privacy principles through an integrated approach with security. This simply means “baking in” privacy considerations and mechanisms, as opposed to “bolting on” as an afterthought throughout the lifecycle of projects, applications, systems, and business processes.
