Get to the cutting edge of GDPR at Business Development Workshop

The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation in May 2018 heralded the most decisive legislative changes in digital security in recent years.

Businesses of all sizes continue to devote resources towards collecting data compliantly, dealing with data breaches, and other mechanisms to satisfy the explicit requirements of the GDPR. But it’s important to remember the broader reasoning for the new laws.

The GDPR and the forthcoming ePrivacy legislation are tangible gateways on an evolving data security landscape. Organisations of all sizes have to adapt culturally, as well as mechanically, if survival is to be guaranteed.

Indeed, the companies doing GDPR best are those that see the many opportunities the laws present. Bosses who are proactive, supple and open to change, those who recognise the benefits of championing sound – and compliant – data handling behaviours, are more likely to see their organisations thrive in our rapidly-changing digital ecosystem.
