PWC White Paper: Technology’s role in data protection – the missing link in GDPR transformation

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) delivers a fundamental change in how data controllers and data processors handle personal data. Instead of an ‘add-on’ or afterthought within business operations, protections for personal data will now have to be designed into the very fabric of data processing systems, meaning that entities will need to re-examine how they approach the use of technology in their organisations.

Data protection laws exist because it is believed that, without them, technology will enable or cause data controllers and processors to trample on fundamental rights and freedoms.

Technology is, in other words, the principal problem that data protection law is trying to solve.

The principal contention of this White Paper is that data controllers and processors who are engaged in the design, build and delivery of GDPR programmes should re-examine and rebalance their priorities, in order to deliver the best possible technology environment for personal data before the GDPR comes into force in May 2018.

GDPR: Seeing Beyond Compliance

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is changing the way businesses approach cyber security and data privacy. It urges organizations to get their data breach defense strategy in place or risk huge fines, apart from loss of customer’s trust and revenue. With the May 2018 deadline approaching rapidly, it is time to start the GDPR compliance journey by laying a solid foundation and asking the right questions.
