Data privacy remains a key focus at Cushman & Wakefield due to the rapidly changing regulatory landscape and heightened consumer expectations. In 2020, we continued enhancing our risk-based approach in protecting the personal information we hold on behalf of our firm, third parties and employees. We believe that requirements concerning data protection and privacy are not costs of doing business, but priority business enablers. Our practices are founded on the principles of confidentiality, integrity and availability, and we are committed to maintaining data protection and security practices that are consistent with market, legal and contractual requirements across the various markets we serve. We further integrated our General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) program, and we attended to significant regulatory developments that took effect in 2020 including the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), the CJEU’s Schrems II decision invalidating the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, and the Brazil LGPD.
