Information is pervasive in our daily lives, with the adequate protection and management of data presenting a growing challenge for organisations. Conforming to the associated requirements ensures there are no unforeseen interruptions to your operations. Customer and employee concerns over personal information and sensitive data can lead to reputational risk. Breaches in data protection legislation can inhibit organisational change and adversely affect technology integration.
