Atlanta - ECIA is pleased to welcome The Trust Bridge™ to its ECIA Service Partner (ESP) Program. The Trust Bridge offers organizations a unique combination of expertise, advice, and practical implementation, combined with independently accredited training, in the data protection and operations area, and in cyber security.
"The Trust Bridge supports ECIA in their mission to bring thought leadership and best practice to the electronic component sector,” explained Penny Heyes, COO The Trust Bridge. “Our work in Data Operations and Protection aims to ensure that all members are aware of the opportunities as well as the challenges that the new Data Privacy regulations bring, and to help them mitigate risk of breach and cyber incidents. We plan to work with ECIA in our project to develop industry guidelines and technical standards for the privacy and regtech software.”
Alan Davis, Director of North American Operations said, "The Trust Bridge has been working in the data privacy and protection area for many years in Europe and the UK. We are now offering that expertise to North America providing comprehensive technical, legal and operational services to members."
“I’m excited to have The Trust Bridge become our latest ECIA Service Partner. Our members have responded very positively to the webinars we have conducted with them,” added Victor Meijers, ECIA Senior Vice President. “I look forward to expanding our partnership to develop programs to inform our members about this important area.”
