Bearer and Trace announce industry partnership

Bearer, the Data security risk platform, has partnered with Trace, a privacy, data security and data governance expert solutions company, to help companies leverage the best of services and software and build a connected compliance programme.

The Trace team brings decades of experience in working with companies to build their data security and data governance capability and apply a proactive Privacy by Design approach. And at Bearer, the team are innovating data risk assessments to build intelligence and stack visibility - meaning customers can scale inventories and surface critical data risks.

Together the teams bring the best blend of human and tech capabilities to help progressive organisations connect the dots for joined up data security, privacy and risk programmes.

"We have been working with Sorcha, and Trace for a number of months now and from the outset, what struck us was her deep expertise in the field while at the same time a fresh perspective that immediately connected with what we do at Bearer. By working together we believe we can offer the industry a very different outlook and bring together a new direction for data security in general."

Guillaume Montard, CEO Bearer


“Holistic is a word much used - and abused - in this area, but we really are taking that as our North Star in creating this partnership. Together with Bearer, we’re on a mission to break privacy, governance and security out of the silo and help build connected compliance across the ecosystem. We’re going to help organisations properly embed data protection compliance properly so that it informs and enriches everything they do.”

Sorcha Lorimer, Founder Trace


Trace and Bearer’s partnership will kick-off with a complimentary clinic where attendees can pose real life dilemmas to our lead experts. This is ideal for FinTech leaders looking for a fresh perspective on data risk and compliance.

A white paper proposing solutions to some of the most pressing data compliance issues facing organisations will follow, sponsored by the Bearer Data-Sec Lab and community.
