Data protection and privacy has become an increasingly important issue due to massive breaches that have compromised the personal information of millions.
In the last 12 months, data privacy has moved from a niche topic, typically dealt with by marketing departments, to a key agenda item in every company board room.
Although technology plays a critical role in managing data privacy it is an issue that companies as a whole need to tackle; HR, Legal, Marketing, IT, Procurement & Finance.
Almost every organisation collects and stores some form of personal data, be it information on their employees (86%) or customers (88%).
