GDPR / DATA PROTECTION COMPLIANCE
We work with our clients to help them become GDPR Compliant and help with compliance with relevant Data Protection laws where they operate. We have a proven GDPR framework to support our clent requirements. This is even for relevant given our Globalization practice and CFO services.
The GDPR is a relatively new law and there is a dearth of expertise in the techno-legal field capable of addressing the concerns being raised after it has come into force, even as the official guidance is slowly developing.
The GDPR is here to stay. Data protection and privacy are only going to become more important as we introduce newer technologies and develop better ways to exploit data for economic gain.
The GDPR is just the beginning of a long journey towards data protection and privacy. It is but one regulation applicable to one community. Already countries in Asia and Africa have announced their intention to follow in its footsteps. The coming wave of data sovereignty will spell new compliance and implementation challenges for organizations unless they forgo their minimalist approach to the regulation and embrace its objectives as part of their organizational culture.
