About Us



Our Story

True North launched in response to one thing: the need to innovate. Innovation in technology has bred new ways for wrongdoers to compromise data privacy and information security measures. This same innovation has connected everything we own and multiplied our vulnerability for cyberattacks. Innovation breeds uncertainty, but that same innovation is also the lifeblood that organizations need to live and thrive.


That’s where we come in.


True North advisors empower organizations to ship efficiently and innovate safely in a united and secure data privacy environment. We help organizations achieve their privacy, security, and risk goals, evolve their data protection capabilities, and plan their privacy and security programs.  With clarity and confidence, we integrate simple solutions in context with the utmost respect to our clients' operations.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple: speak like a human, solve like a machine.


Even the savviest organizations feel overwhelmed by tackling data privacy and information security problems on their own. Why? Because those issues get complicated quickly. True North advisors are plainspoken, so technical jargon never gets in the way of an intelligent solution. Clients can’t leverage our knowledge of technology and the law if we aren’t speaking the same language. Our philosophy helps us give our clients direction and reassurance with sharp, simple, and elegant solutions to their most complex problems.


We stay up-to-date with the governing bodies that certify our profession. Here are our advisors’ current certifications:


  • CISM (Certified Information Security Manager)

  • CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional)

  • FIP (Fellow of Information Privacy)

  • CDPSE (Certified Data Privacy Solutions Engineer)

  • CRISC (Certified In Risk And Information Systems Control)

  • CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor)

  • CIPT (Certified Information Privacy Technologist)

  • CIPM (Certified Information Privacy Manager)
