Data Governance, GDPR and Data Security


Taming the lion and aligning GDPR, Data Governance and Regulation

Managers hear the hoof beats of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) bearing down on them. In May of 2018, the regulations go into effect. Are you prepared? Is your business and data governance, risk and compliance tuned to responding? What action should be in play now to line up with the regulations? To what degree do regulations influence strategy? Operations? IT? Other parts of the Organization?

GDPR impacts all levels of the organization including staff performance and preparation, IT systems, databases, processes, policies, procedures and many other organization components that elude awareness and anticipation of change.

There is more to responding to the regulation than just compliance. Organizations must take into account the new security needs including the cyber forensics that are key to identify intruders as well as the vast requirement on data governance that this implies.

Meeting the data threats today requires a combination of skills and expertise. Responding to new regulations on data privacy implies the integration of several capabilities such as:

  • Understanding regulations and how to respond
  • Implementing an effective data governance capability
  • Dealing with attempts to breach your data
