    In the complex world of market research, there exists a dual responsibility: On the one hand, companies need to gather detailed and specific data to create meaningful insights. On the other hand, they have an obligation to protect the privacy and security of that very same data. When the data in question is Personally Identifiable Information (PII), this responsibility becomes even more critical. In this intricate process, whether at our state-of-the-art facilities or online, we ensure that PII security meets industry standards, allowing clients to focus solely on their research while we handle everything else. 

    Our commitment to PII security standards in market research is uncompromising. We consider the protection of sensitive data an absolute priority. Through a combination of continuous education, stringent security measures, and transparent disclosure, we maintain and fortify the trust that our clients place in us.

    Earning Trust with a Focus on Prioritizing Security

    As market research recruiting firms continuously build their databases to fulfill current and future study needs, the challenge of maintaining standards around the amount and type of data stored becomes apparent. Without clear, stringent protocols in place, firms run the risk of storing excessive PII or unnecessary types of data. At Fieldwork, we understand these challenges and are proactive in our approach to maintaining PII security standards. We’re fully committed to maintaining the highest standards of security. We engage our clients, employees; and respondents equally in these efforts, which include ongoing education, execution of security measures; and diligence in proper disclosures.
