In today's digital world, personal information brings risk and potential.


With this increased value, companies now face unprecedented challenges in managing related privacy and security risks and increased regulatory scrutiny. AlixPartners helps clients manage these risks, effectively meet regulatory obligations, and respond to incidents when things go awry.  

Our approach to information risk management is holistic. Our team of privacy, risk and technology experts partner with clients to help them identify their most valuable assets and prioritize proper management based on actual risk and regulatory obligations.

How we can help

Expert Witness Services

We routinely serve as expert witnesses, presenting independent facts and opinions in the areas of digital forensics, privacy technology, and digital ad-tech. Our damages experts are also adept at assessing privacy harms and modeling economic damage calculations. 

Program & Policy Assessments

We conduct risk and maturity assessments of existing or developing programs and policies to provide reasonable and actionable recommendations for improvement. We don’t just drop a 100-page highly technical report of findings on your desk, but work with you to provide meaningful and understandable information you can act on.

Information Asset Mapping & Geofencing

We help you understand the full lifecycle of personal information within your organization and help you identify how it’s being collected, who is using it and for what purposes. We also assist clients to assess their global personal data flows and ringfence personal data in specific jurisdictions to meet their regulatory and operational needs. 

Privacy Incident Investigations & Testing

We help our clients respond to lawsuits, whistleblower allegations and other privacy incidents by leading technically complex fact investigations and control testing exercises. Our team also has experience reviewing the collection and use of personal information by mobile apps, websites and other consumer facing products, and validating these against privacy policies and disclosures.

Serving as Independent Monitors & Assessors

We help clients remediate regulatory findings and respond to formal inquiries. We often act as independent monitors, assessors, and consultants in privacy related regulatory enforcement actions and settlements. 

Serving as CISOs & Data Privacy Officers

We routinely assist our clients by filling talent gaps at the executive officer level, providing both short and long-term strategic assistance to upper management, boards, and shareholders.  We also serve as third-party data privacy officers to help clients meet their regulatory obligations when they lack internal resources.
