Creating a sustainable, governed data asset for GDPR and beyond

With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and its enforcement from 25th May 2018, a new balance will be created between commercial interests and consumer rights around personal and sensitive data. All individuals possess personal data which needs to be shared with organisations – customers during transactions, employees at work, business partners under contract. Engaging positively and responsibly with these data subjects is the intended outcome of the Regulation and will ensure business is sustainable as well as capable of continued innovation.In the run-up to this new environment, much will be done to educate individuals about their new rights and the need for businesses to process their data. At the moment, awareness is low – just 10 per cent of consumers surveyed said they are fully aware of GDPR (Source: 'GDPR Impact 2017', DataIQ commissioned survey of 1,001 UK consumers conducted by Research Now, February 2017). But just as data security has become a mainstream issue, so will data protection. The difference is in the opportunity for demonstrating the upside of data sharing, rather than defending against the downsides of data breaches.Download the whitepaper to help you develop your GDPR readiness program.IBM can assist you with your GDPR readiness programme through a full end-to-end solution.
