In today’s digital world, everything revolves around data. Around the globe, laws are continuously being introduced to regulate the use of data related to human beings, called ‘personal data’, in order to protect our privacy. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is globally renowned as the ‘gold standard’ of privacy protection and increasingly serves as a source of influence for other jurisdictions. Privacy laws such as those contained in the GDPR will often have a substantial impact on your organisation and business processes.
Privacy compliance is not just important to avoid substantial fines. Being able to show your employees and your customers that you value and respect their privacy is vital for your organisation’s reputation and competitive positioning.
