WASHINGTON and POMPANO BEACH, Fla., June 4, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Active Navigation, the data privacy and governance software provider, today announced a strategic business partnership with LinkIT LATAM, an international business development consulting firm, to strengthen its presence in Latin America. Active Navigation's expansion comes as countries in Latin America continue to invest in data privacy solutions.
Many countries in Latin America are adjusting their existing data protection regulations to align with the new international legislative context ushered in by the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This includes Brazil's Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados (LGPD), modelled after the GDPR, and Colombia's Data Protection Law.
"Our expansion into Latin America marks a significant milestone for Active Navigation as we introduce our world-class software to a new audience," said Active Navigation's Chief Executive Officer Peter Baumann. "LinkIT LATAM offers expert guidance and extensive international business development support. They will play a key role introducing our flagship product, Discovery Center, to the Latin American market. With a steady uptick in global data protection laws there is a compelling need for regulatory compliance. We look forward to supporting our international customers and their growing data privacy requirements with LinkIT LATAM."
"Active Navigation is well-positioned for explosive growth internationally, and we are excited to lead their development efforts in LATAM," said Juan Carlos Cerrutti, CEO and LinkIT LATAM Co-Founder. "Data privacy requirements and regulations are expected to grow exponentially in LATAM. This partnership will help thousands of Brazilian companies that need to comply with the LGPD before May of 2021. We are thrilled to be working with Active Navigation."
As data privacy laws proliferate, companies need a clear understanding of what data they are collecting, storing, and managing. By partnering, Active Navigation and LinkIT LATAM will make it easier for companies to gain visibility and actionable insights into their digital footprint.
