If you are an organisation that processes personal data, making sure you are compliant with data protection legislation is an increasingly important issue, particularly with the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the risk of potential fines and reputational damage of non-compliance. In addition, data is likely to be one of your most valuable commodities and how you handle it impacts on customer trust in you.
