Know where you stand
Data protection compliance is not easy. Organisations not only need to take into account a myriad of regional, national and sector specific privacy laws, but also the ample regulations, opinions and guidelines issued by regulators. However, these laws and regulations are generally based on the same key principles. Knowing how well your organisation is aligned with each of these basic principles allow you to focus your energy and resources where they are needed, and develop an appropriate compliance programme.
