Did you enjoy the photo of Doris'er Sultaan, taking on GDPR!?!
We’re surrounded by this kind of fresh innovative talent who have been immersed in high profile GDPR projects and delivering fantastic results for our customers. Keep an eye out for our #MillennialsMondays Video Podcast about GDPR this month which will condense the phenomenon into a short enjoyably digestible video!
GDPR is correcting the balance of power of your data. Take advantage and get to know what it means for you. Check out what the Doris’ers, who are on GDPR project assignments right now have to say about it:
‘To me GDPR is all about businesses being as careful with your personal data as they would be with their own corporate data. It requires them to make sure they understand exactly who has access to what information and why. It’s giving us, the consumers, the right to control our own data and who can use it.
In my current project our customers approach to GDPR has been to track and plot all of the distinct streams within the business and the customer/employee journeys within these, where data flows and what systems and third parties then have access to this data. It's allowed us to clearly see where the risks are and plan to address them.’
‘Although GDPR increases the work load, it is absolutely essential to improve relationships between businesses and their consumers. It increases trust and engagement between both parties, developing stronger relationships leading ultimately to a higher return on investment.
During my assignments I’ve found that compliance to GDPR should be less problematic for the majority of companies that built databases and handled data with the customers in mind from the outset. I find the new legislation extremely fair and the number of organisations struggling with the transition to GDPR highlights how overdue it is.’
Andrew and Reece:
‘GDPR is a new, EU-wide regulation that will bring the existing Data Protection Law into the 21st Century. It is designed to give customers more visibility and choice in how their personal data is used by companies, to help make sure they are using it in a clear, trustworthy, responsible and ethical manner. We are working to help govern new GDPR policies, which ensure that data is processed, stored and erased to the standards that customers want and expect.’
The IT Industry has a great responsibility to support the legislation and the powerful buzz around GDPR at the moment shows how the Industry is reacting to it.
