Over the past decade, Castlebridge has become the go-to authority in data governance, privacy and ethics.

We are constantly researching, asking questions and challenging the status quo in order to contribute to the conversations happening today and share this knowledge and insight with our client base to achieve actual business results. A quick look at  our blog  &  whitepaper archive will illustrate just how often we are correct in our forward thinking!

We are also called upon regularly by Irish and international businesses, academia and media to speak about our knowledge in these areas.

Our most recent research has been in the area of Data Ethics, resulting in the publication of “Ethical Data and Information Management” by our Directors Daragh O Brien and Dr. Katherine O’Keefe. As data ethics has become the next emerging trend in Enterprise Information Management, this book paves the way in thinking on the subject not only in Ireland but around the world. We have also developed training modules that expand on the concepts we explore in the book.
