The good news for jobs in Midtown just keeps on coming….as data privacy OneTrust adds 500 Midtown jobs!
The company has developed technology that helps business protect sensitive personal data of employees and customers. (Maybe they could cruise up Spring Street and visit the Equifax office…they seem to need some help!)
As part of a $5M expansion, the footprint of OneTrust’s Midtown office will double. They plan to lease an additional floor in the Midtown Heights office building on Spring Street. The company was launched March, 2016 and is co-headquartered in London. Their software is in demand as the European Union and other regulators are working to protect the privacy of citizens with new laws.
Businesses are collecting more and more consumer data (seen those crazy ads pop up on Facebook right after you searched for a new car?) and this makes them cyber-hacking hot spots! Just ask Equifax, also located in Midtown…that just announced a massive data breach.
In the ABC article, “OneTrust’s growth is fueled by the macro trends of organizations collecting more personal data than ever before; IoT making this data even more sensitive; big data pressuring organizations to analyze and use the data in new ways; and consumer demand for additional privacy rights,” OneTrust CEO Kabir Barday noted. “All of this is putting pressure on organizations to think twice about how they protect the information they hold.”
OneTrust employees that may be relocating to Midtown Atlanta as new hires for the company will have numerous housing choices…from luxury apartments to high-rise condos. The Midtown Heights Building is convenient to the Arts Center MARTA station. This area of Midtown is starting to see more construction that should bring dining options nearby. Those looking for more space in townhome living can look at exciting areas like Chamblee and Brookhaven for other options! Chamblee offers the most direct access to MARTA, making for an easy commute to Midtown.
