Quick-Anonymizer : protect your clients' data

Posted by Benoit David_ on Jun 6, 2018 11:44:00 AM

In our increasingly digital world, privacy and data security are at the heart of business operations and customer relationships.

In order to protect the identity of citizens and reduce piracy, a new law entered into force on 25 May, 2018 in Europe: the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). All indications are that the same type of settlement is also expected to see the light of day in North America.

It is a vast law but one aspect of it is that it requires any company, in Europe or elsewhere, that processes the personal data of European customers, to demonstrate their ability to protect their confidential information as soon as data is transferred/copied outside the production environment for training purposes, development or testing by anonymizing the data.

Posted by Marc Beaulieu_ on Apr 24, 2018 10:02:00 AM

Corporate culture: the driving force behind the success of Present

Posted by Marc Beaulieu_ on Mar 14, 2018 7:50:00 AM

I think a strong and well-defined corporate culture is essential to success. As individuals work on themselves during their lives, companies must also improve with the goal of reaching their full potential. It is by sticking to well-defined values that a company will be able to excel and surpass itself.

Since it is a conceptual element, corporate culture is often difficult to identify and disseminate for leaders who are more used to concrete actions. Therefore, a process of reflection is needed. At Present, we make time for this and because we understand better who we are as an organization, we are able to give more!
