Truata is a privacy-enhanced data analytics solutions provider that specialises in privacy risk assessment, de-identification and true anonymization of data. The company enables businesses to unlock powerful insights with its suite of proprietary solutions, while complying with the highest global data protection standards to build trust and transparency with customers.
Truata was born out of Mastercard and was living in its shadow from a media perspective; the company was finding it hard to break free. It came to us to help articulate its messaging around privacy-enhanced analytics for data anonymisation and to build its profile as a leader – in its own right. In short, Truata wanted intellectual property that could be used to promote its brand name to the world.
We launched a survey with our sister agency, Arlington Research, to capture the views of consumers across the globe, to understand the challenges and fears they face around data privacy. It looked at how their attitudes had changed over the course of the pandemic, with their ever-growing digital footprint.
The findings were stark. Over three-quarters (77%) of global consumers revealed they’d taken steps to reduce their digital footprint for fear that they are losing control of their privacy. What’s more, nearly half (48%) of consumers admitted to losing control over how much data is stored about them, with 49% feeling that COVID-19 restrictions forced them into expanding their digital footprint.
This gave us our story. It was packaged and amplified via a detailed whitepaper, with contributions from leading experts in the field, designed infographics for social media, and a hard-working media hub, that included a number of press releases, bylines and expert commentary.
Pieces of coverage in less than a year
Our expert media relations team achieved more than 90 pieces of coverage in less than a year, with an OTS totalling more than 235 million. We secured a briefing for Truata’s CEO with a leading BBC business reporter and broadcast coverage with BBC Business Update. Truata’s share of voice against its competitors rose, and the whitepaper was utilised by its sales and marketing teams to secure new leads.
