General Data Protection Regulation is a pressing issue for major consumer-facing organisations across the EU. Compliance by May 2018 is mandatory for those affected. Fines of up to 4 per cent of turnover may result from breaches.
There is no surprise GDPR is being taken seriously by firms wanting to avoid such severe penalties, but finding and deploying suitable individuals to lead these initiatives is not straightforward. They are required by legislation to report to their Board so will need sufficient seniority and experience. Their remit cuts across IT, Compliance, Legal, Risk, Marketing and other functions so skillful stakeholder management is essential. Enterprise budgets for FTSE-100-sized organisations run to tens of millions of pounds so close financial control is not optional.
Relevant qualifications are scarce, but Hansal are here to help you understand and access those most equipped to lead Data Protection functions and programmes.
