Message from our Chief Trust Architect

Andrew Clearwater's headshot

OneTrust is building the only platform that brings privacy, security, and governance teams together, working as one technology solution. While OneTrust is rooted in privacy, we’ve evolved to serve a broader vision. We realize that trust is more than a compliance-driven effort; Our customers want to build programs that are focused on trust and transparency with their employees, customers, partners, and community.

Our platform has expanded to manage everything that makes up trust — privacy and data governance, GRC and security assurance, ethics and compliance, ESG and sustainability — all within one platform. We believe that trust is a culmination of all these efforts working together, centralized and without siloes.

As Chief Trust Officer my responsibility lies with ensuring our customers feel confident in how their information is being used and to lead the way for other executive teams to truly leverage OneTrust products and services to their fullest extent. We have been and will continue to use our own platform in our day-to-day operations — helping us gain a better understanding of how to optimize our resources and tools to best serve our customers’ needs.

ESG and Sustainability

We are built on trust, and our commitment to protecting human rights, caring for communities, and strengthening our society is at the heart of our work. We nurture responsible business in three ways: lead by example; share our knowledge with the world; and create technology that helps companies accelerate their ESG integration.

Meet the Team

Our team strives to not only comply with and implement best practices, but to stay one step ahead, pioneering the future of privacy, security, ethics, and ESG as technology continues to evolve.

Tactical Solutions Are No Longer Enough

Organizations are maturing beyond tactical-based governance tools of the past that simply check a compliance box, to realizing the value of trust at the center of their programs to drive values-based competitive differentiation.
