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.


Through a series of posts on our Publications & Blog page, Commissioner White expands upon the inspiration behind Mid-Atlantic Privacy and each of its Compass Points.
