Understanding Your Data – The Foundation for Thriving in Generation Privacy

Today, personal data is owned by whoever collects it. Post GDPR, personal data is owned by the subject. GDPR creates a standardised set of expectations as to how your organisation must manage personal data in this new world.

GDPR has been described by some as being the most significant regulatory framework to hit companies since the Sarbanes-Oxley act. With a stated objective to “give citizens back control of their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for business” it will impact every single European individual who has shared their personal data with an organisation and every single organisation that holds information on any European individual.

Data Should Be Your Primary Concern

Today, personal data is owned by whoever collects it. Post GDPR, personal data is owned by the subject. GDPR creates a standardised set of expectations as to how your organisation must manage personal data in this new world.

GDPR has been described by some as being the most significant regulatory framework to hit companies since the Sarbanes-Oxley act. With a stated objective to “give citizens back control of their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for business” it will impact every single European individual who has shared their personal data with an organisation and every single organisation that holds information on any European individual.

GDPR is a fundamental change of data ownership.

The price is high for non-compliance.

The large financial penalties of non-compliance have been frequently reported. However, the risk is far greater than one fine. With GDPR allowing individuals to take class actions against organisations that mistreat their data, any organisation that is subject to a data leak / hacking incident can expect to receive individual lawsuits which will not only increase the financial loss, but also consume vast amounts of time in settling individual litigation.

With this understanding in place, data management becomes the primary activity for any organisation getting ready for GDPR.
