Photon’s proactive approach to data privacy, data security, and web accessibility can help you audit your current policies, practices and develop a roadmap to ensure your organization’s GDPR, CCPA, and WCAG 2.1 readiness.

Non-compliance with these regulations could lead to significant liabilities, hefty penalties, potential lawsuits, and embarrassment to your brand’s public reputation. To be in tune with the ever-changing world of data privacy and web accessibility, Photon has designed a proactive approach to compliance readiness. 

What are GDPR, CCPA, and WCAG 2.1?

  • GDPR: The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulations in 20 years, fundamentally reshaping the way data is handled and controlled across every industry. 
  • CCPA: California Consumer Privacy Act is the beginning of America’s GDPR and applies to for-profit entities that both collect and process the personal information of California residents - regardless if doing business in California or not. 
  • WCAG 2.1:  The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are a series of web accessibility guidelines published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). It provides equal access and equal opportunity to people with disabilities and is in accordance with the Americans Disabilities Act (ADA).

At Photon, we have extensive experience working with global brands offering tailored solutions to meet each of these regulations. Whether you are just starting your GDPR, CCPA, or WCAG 2.1 implementation process or have a compliance program in place, Photon can help ensure that your consumer touchpoints and PI data are secure and meet the ever-changing compliance regulatory landscape.
