MiTek Industries, part of the Berkshire Hathaway group, is a manufacturing building materials and engineering software. With a global customer base, privacy plays a key role in MiTek’s extensive operation.
“Privacy is important because it is good business practice, but it also shouldn’t be considered a chore, it’s a positive. Privacy is empowering,” said Irakli Kheladze, Global Data Protection Officer at MiTek.
As the DPO for a global organization, Irakli needed a tool to centralize data, provide exposure to what is happening across global subsidiaries, and unify data processing operations. He was also looking for technology to help manage the additional workloads localization posed. In a nutshell, MiTek was looking for a solution to make their privacy program management more efficient.
During the search for a privacy management technology, MiTek was repeatedly referred to OneTrust. After a review of the available modules and conversations with OneTrust developers, MiTek knew OneTrust was the right solution to meet its needs.
