MID-ATLANTIC PRIVACY COMPASS

Bermuda sits at the crossroads of the Atlantic, physically, culturally, and economically. This has long been to the island’s benefit, claiming the best of multiple worlds to create a prosperous and successful community.

In the privacy context, two polar ideologies are often presented as in conflict: the protection of individual rights versus business success.

 

Following Bermuda tradition, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner rejects this either-or narrative and proposes a philosophy of Mid-Atlantic Privacy to help organisations navigate towards finding win-win scenarios, towards developing privacy practices to protect rights and enable business operations, and towards embracing challenges in order to find ways to innovate while protecting privacy.
