The seemingly ever-changing privacy regulatory landscape has transformed the way organizations and individuals think about the protection and use of personal information. The need to manage personal information in a secure and compliant way is greater than ever. 

The introduction of new data protection laws, the increasing level of regulatory action and the changing cyber threat landscape, all drive an organisation’s privacy compliance requirements. Apart from these risk and regulatory drivers, there are other factors that are forcing organisations to adapt and enhance their privacy practices; these include new technology, a greater focus on digital transformation and the changing public perception regarding the collection and use of individuals’ personal information.

With greater scrutiny from data protection regulators, activists and privacy-savvy consumers, now more than ever, organisations should be seeking to consolidate and strengthen. With such a variety of challenges, it can be difficult to focus on the issues that matter most to the business.
