The Savvas
DIFFERENCE

Ensuring our customers’ data remains protected is a 24/7 job. That is why Savvas has a fully dedicated Data Privacy and Security team whose sole job is to keep our customers’ data secure and our policies and practices in full regulatory compliance. The cross-functional team is composed of licensed and credentialed data privacy and security professionals, headed by both our Chief Information Security Officer and our Chief Privacy Officer. Our comprehensive data governance framework is frequently reviewed by a specially appointed Data Privacy and Security Steering Committee. We also partner with world-class security experts to provide additional safeguards.
