Seattle, Washington – January 22, 2019 – Today, LDH Consulting Services is proud to announce the launch of its new library data privacy consultancy. The consultancy offers a range of library data privacy services to US libraries and library vendors, including privacy audits, training, policy and procedure analysis, and privacy risk assessment.
Data is one of the most valuable assets in today's organizations, as well as one of the most vulnerable. Through data, libraries demonstrate their value to the community they serve, whether an institute of higher education, municipality, or corporation. However, the wide range of local and vendor systems and workflows that collect, store, and report on patron data creates a high risk of that data being breached.
LDH Consulting Services assists libraries and vendors in meeting operational needs for library data without putting patron privacy at high risk. They take a holistic approach addressing the balance of library data privacy and operational needs within the lifecycle (collection, storage, retention, access, reporting, deletion) of their clients' data.
