Information and information systems are vital to our increasingly digital and connected world. As a global Information Technology (IT) company that specializes in providing solutions with leading-edge security to clients in government and commercial markets, Unisys understands the need to respect privacy and protect personal data without impeding the demands of today’s worldwide information exchange.
Dedicated to protecting critical data from threats such as theft, fraud, misuse and disaster, Unisys employs rigorous measures to protect personal information while in use and at rest, the media where it is stored, the systems that process it, and the methods by which it is transmitted. This protection works to ensure the integrity, availability and confidentiality of information and information systems.
Data Processor Privacy Protection
Organizations that collect personal information are mandated to protect and ensure it is used in a way that respects the privacy of the individual whose personal details they collected. These organizations must thoroughly vet and select entities that will process this personal information to assure that the proper security and privacy measures are in place both within the processor’s organization and any sub-processors entrusted with the organization’s data.
External threats and regulatory requirements are constantly evolving, demanding an IT partner that handles valuable client information with care, possesses a firm understanding of operational needs and maintains a proactive approach to anticipating and addressing future requirements in the evolving security landscape.

Our Privacy Practices
Our Chief Privacy Officer leads Unisys’ Global Privacy Office (GPO) with a team of certified privacy professionals. The GPO defines a framework of policies and procedures, including the use of OneTrust privacy management software. These are implemented across the globe to ensure that we meet data privacy requirements.
In doing this work, the GPO is supported by a dispersed network of data protection officers, attorneys, and functional, security and business privacy leads embedded across the company. They ensure our privacy program remains closely aligned with our business objectives and act as a bridge between the GPO and their business units, allowing us to deploy function and business unit-specific approaches to data and privacy compliance.
To advance our knowledge and stay current with evolving global privacy regulations, Unisys is a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), the largest global information privacy community and resource.
OneTrust privacy management software is used across Unisys to facilitate privacy impact assessments, record data processing activities and to map data flows.
Our annual privacy training program is mandatory for all associates. It is tailored to specific business units and teams to focus on real-life application for different groups of associates.
