PLAINSBORO, New Jersey, July 9 /PRNewswire/ --

SAI Global, a leading provider of governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, has expanded its portfolio of compliance and risk management services by purchasing the Privacy Knowledgebase (PKB) from Stone Investments, Inc.

The Privacy Knowledgebase is a Web-based database of privacy and data protection information designed for privacy, legal and compliance professionals who must stay abreast of complex, rapidly changing local and global privacy regulations and legislation. Users can easily search summaries, abstracts, industry guidelines, documents and other materials, and link to primary regulations and legislation. Value-added commentary is researched and edited by privacy experts around the world and conveniently organized by country. In addition to over 70 detailed country privacy profiles, the PKB includes industry-specific profiles for the U.S.

"The Privacy Knowledgebase provides one-stop online access to the worldwide privacy information that privacy compliance professionals must have," said Andy Wyszkowski, Global Head of Compliance for SAI Global. "The complex, ever-changing privacy landscape presents real challenges for our clients who must always stay up-to-date, and we're delighted to provide an on point solution that addresses this need."

Gary Clayton, a recognized privacy attorney and consultant, has been retained by SAI Global to provide subject matter expertise in concert with the Privacy Knowledgebase and engage with clients globally.
