Guest: Sunny Athwal
As the Chief Privacy Officer, Sunny leads the Global Privacy Office (GPO), with responsibility for advising and delivering a global privacy framework that complies with all applicable privacy laws and client contractual obligations. 

The GPO has implemented a privacy program that sets itself to the highest standard across our geographies and client locations, and instilled a culture of privacy at HCL. The program was designed to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and has since evolved to take into account the ever evolving privacy landscape. The program utilizes a principle based approach and also embeds privacy controls and client-specific industry requirements across HCL.

Prior to joining HCL, Sunny worked as in-house data privacy counsel in the financial services and technology industry, including Symantec and Visa. She is a Allen & Overy qualified lawyer who has extensive experience in operationalising compliance with privacy laws and regulations.
