WASHINGTON, April 5, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At the IAPP Global Privacy Summit, Nymity and Baker & McKenzie announced a strategic alliance involving the integration of Nymity Attestor™, one of Nymity's advanced privacy management solutions, with iG360, Baker & McKenzie's award winning global legal information governance compliance solution.

Baker & McKenzie's clients will now be able to access Nymity Attestor™ via the iG360 platform, and Baker & McKenzie's privacy and information management practitioners will be able to leverage the Nymity Attestor™ solution to help their clients better assess and demonstrate accountability and compliance of multiple business units over time through evidence gathering and easy-to-follow visualizations. This strategic alliance will combine Baker & McKenzie's deep legal compliance expertise with the Nymity Privacy Management Accountability Framework™ that is used as the cornerstone of the privacy platform provided by Nymity.

"There couldn't be a better time for this alliance to happen" said Theo Ling, Partner and Chair of Baker & McKenzie's Global Privacy and Information Management Leadership Team. "Global organizations are actively seeking an end-to-end compliance solution that marries sophisticated top-tier global legal guidance with the best available technology and workflows that can deliver such experience in a user-friendly and transparent format. The integration of Nymity Attestor™ with our iG360 platform will help us transform our clients' experience and increase their confidence when dealing with privacy and information governance matters", Mr. Ling said while attending the IAPP event.

Terry McQuay, President and Founder of Nymity Inc. added "We are very excited about this alliance with Baker & McKenzie. Using Nymity Attestor™ as a services platform will help the firm create a unique customer experience through innovating compliance". When asked about how Nymity could help demonstrate compliance with challenging regulations like the GDPR and the Privacy Shield, Mr. McQuay said, "Our research team is constantly studying existing and new regulations. This has allowed us to create specific add-ons for the GDPR and the Privacy Shield to be embedded in our platform. Nymity Attestor™ is ready to support Baker & McKenzie's team when they help their clients to assess and achieve ongoing compliance with these and other existing regulations around the world".

The IAPP Global Privacy Summit is an annual event that brings together privacy experts from around the world, like Mr. Ling and Mr. McQuay, to share knowledge and experiences on how to protect personal data.
