Invitation to Participate in New Product Development

Published

Crossword Cybersecurity and the University of Glasgow are inviting businesses to participate in the development of an innovative product in the privacy governance space.

The aim is to give businesses the opportunity to shape a new product that would address their current challenges in managing data privacy and protection.

As a knowledge transfer company, Crossword Cybersecurity PLC has a track record of working with research intensive universities and industry partners to advance solutions for cyber-security and third-party risk management software.

There are 2 phases in this project where you can get involved:

Phase 1 - Discovery

Crossword Cybersecurity PLC and the University of Glasgow have identified the set of activities undertaken by various roles within your company, and their associated risks for non-compliance with privacy regulations.

To confirm that this is an accurate representation of the risks encountered within these roles, they would like to share their model with you and your colleagues, specifically if their role is:

» Sales Executive or Manager

» Consultant or Manager

» Project Manager

» Financial Manager

» HR Professional or Manager

» Software Developer or Manager

» Low/No-Code Developer

» SysAdmin, DBA, Dev/Ops

» Data Privacy Professional or Manager, DPO

» Chief Information Officers

Once you have had the chance to review our model, you would be invited to a 30min, 60min or 90min feedback session depending on your availability. Here, they will be seeking to:

» Verify the findings in their model

» Understand whether this role-based approach could be useful to your company

» Understand what tools or processes you are currently using to help you manage data privacy

Your input will be key to determining which data privacy problems their product will solve and ensure that their solution is robust and effective.

Phase 2 – Validate if the product would work for you

Following the Discovery Phase and with the help of your feedback, they will define our product concept and design an initial, high-level prototype. If you would like to remain engaged in the development of this project, they would once again invite you to contribute to the validation phase. At this latter stage, they would be seeking to understand whether the concept would add real value to your company, or how you think it could be improved to do so.
