One of Booking’s core values is “do the right thing”, which means doing the right thing for our Customers, Partners, and employees, as well as following local laws and regulations wherever we operate. The risks associated with Privacy breaches, from financial to reputation, such as loss of trust, and law enforcement, are amongst the highest our company faces and have become a focus area in many of our core markets over the last five years.
The newly formed Privacy Engineering Track in the Horizontal Business Services department is a growing team of highly skilled software engineers whose vision is to assure that privacy measures are enforced across Booking products and services. By identifying areas of improvement in practices relative to managing privacy data, we aim to mitigate risks across the company as we implement new infrastructure, services, frameworks, and controls. Amongst other challenges we look forward to overcoming this year, the team is currently designing and building a new consent management service from scratch to become the single source of truth of user consent, propagate changes, and limit access to user-tracked data based on privacy settings.
