The Rising Tide of Data Privacy Regulations

A Guide to Staying Afloat

Webinar: The Rising Tide of Data Privacy Regulations​

It’s time to gear up: GDPR was just the start!


In 2018, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduced significant changes to consumer rights, the power of regulatory authorities, and the magnitude of sanctions for non-compliance.
It also set a strong standard for data privacy governance and territorial reach and inspired a number of similar legislative measures. Several countries and governments are in the process of issuing new data privacy laws, making it more challenging and complex for businesses to manage.

Five Lessons We Learned from GDPR

  • Encryption is more important than ever

    GDPR imposes strict requirements on organizations that have suffered a data breach. By encrypting data in transit, as well as at rest, you can greatly reduce the risk of exposure by breaches – and in turn, may benefit from reduced notification requirements.

GDPR: The First Ripple of a Rising Tide?


Today, most organizations rely on increasing levels of customer data to help them engage with customers and provide personalized experiences. Many businesses have collected this data wherever they could and may have found new sources to help perfect their customer engagement strategy. But with this growing insight has come rising privacy concerns.

Unregulated possession and use of customer information could leave individuals vulnerable to its misuse, as evidenced by recent data breaches and exploitation by third parties. In response, governments are asserting customer rights, creating privacy protection for individuals within their regions.

Measures, similar in their principles to GDPR, are now being introduced around the globe. According to Gartner, “Multiple countries are implementing regulations inspired by the GDPR principles, a movement that is likely to continue into the foreseeable future.” All of this is in addition to other regulations that already govern the use and processing of personal data, potentially placing an extra burden on businesses.

Helping You Stay Afloat

The new wave of privacy regulations is approaching fast. Learn more about evolving regulations and complex challenges.

While governments are moving to secure and assert privacy rights and implement data protection regulations, there is increasing customer demand for more efficient service tailored to individual needs. These differing requirements can work against one another and are the cause of a number of challenges that businesses have to face today. These include:

  • The scope for conflicting processes that require proper operational oversight, to avoid compliance failures.
  • There is a continuous change in the nature and extent of data that can, cannot, or must be captured and properly handled – across multiple communication channels. This makes the recording, storing, management and retrieval of such information a serious headache for IT teams and a risk to your business.
  • Having to comply with a range of strict, constantly evolving regulations, across different jurisdictions. Sometimes just keeping up with the changes is a challenge itself.
  • Keeping all data safe. The amount of data generated is growing exponentially. Solving the challenge of capturing, storing, archiving, classifying and searching this data is not enough – data also needs to be secured at all times.
  • Regulatory compliance is a resource-hungry task that can be a heavy burden for your business – both in terms of budget and headcount.
