About Osano

Get to Know Osano

Meet the company dedicated to simplifying privacy compliance so companies can stay compliant, increase trust, and do the right thing.

Our Story

Doing Well by Doing Good

Why We’re Here

Osano was founded in October of 2018 by CEO Arlo Gilbert and CTO Scott Hertel. Earlier that year, they watched in disbelief as members of the U.S. Congress questioned technology leaders about online data privacy. It was clear then, just as it's clear now, that even the best and brightest officials lacked essential knowledge about how data is stored and shared—and if they were confused, then businesses must be as well. 


Arlo and Scott quickly learned they were right. When it comes to data privacy, doing the right thing can be complicated. Increasingly complex new and updated laws are being implemented across geographies. Organizations don’t always have the resources or the staff to make sure they’re compliant once a new law goes into effect. And when they do reach compliance, the threat of wide-scale data breaches and lack of insight into their vendors can shatter consumer and employee trust. They feel like the odds are against them. 
That’s where Osano comes in. Osano makes it easy to do the right thing by minimizing the risk and complexity of privacy compliance with solutions that meet everyone’s needs. We believe data privacy is a fundamental human right, and the companies that embrace privacy will become the next wave of trusted brands. 


What We Do

Osano is an all-in-one data privacy platform that helps organizations build, manage, and scale their privacy programs. The platform provides an easy-to-use solution for consent, data subject rights, assessments, vendor risk management, and more, helping organizations stay compliant and increase trust with their customers and partners. Whether you’re just getting started with data privacy or looking to automate your existing privacy program, Osano meets you where you are on your privacy journey. 


Each of the platform’s features is tailored to the data privacy laws that impact your consumers and team members. These features can work together in tandem or separately as your needs allow. Our platform helps you:  

  • Simplify privacy program management: Osano gets you up and running quickly so you can steer clear of hard-to-implement tooling that keeps you out of compliance longer. 
  • Automate complex compliance work: Avoid the errors and risks that come with manual processes. Features such as consent management automation and subject rights automation give you time to focus on your most critical priorities. 
  • Gain confidence in your compliance: Osano provides the industry’s only “No Fines. No Penalties.” pledge and Osano’s global team of privacy experts continuously monitors the privacy landscape, keeping you and the platform up to date. 

How We Work

As the first data privacy platform that is also a B Corporation, we are dedicated to meeting the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. This status, along with our status as a Public Benefit Corporation, points toward our core values:  

  • Bold Action: Keeping companies compliant with the latest data privacy laws requires the ability to move quickly without holding back. We strive to go against the grain while ensuring data privacy is accessible to all. 
  • Authenticity & Inclusion: Data privacy laws impact everyone, not only a select few. We understand the importance of having diverse skills, backgrounds, and mindsets on our team to create an inclusive product that is authentic to who we are, our customers, and their consumers.  
  • Operational Excellence: Efficiency is key to creating solutions that minimize risk and complexity, especially when it comes to organizing your data and becoming compliant with new privacy laws. To stay on top of our ever-changing industry, we must be dependable, organized, and collaborative. 
  • Delightful Experience: Trust is a core tenet of data privacy. To establish trust with our team members, customers, and their customers, we must go above and beyond what's expected. We believe every touch along the customer and team journey is an opportunity to have a lasting, positive impact.
