IT Privacy and Data Protection
Organizations collect, store and process more and more data. Even personal data. Personal data may contain sensitive information that could have a big impact on privacy. For example location data, financial data or people’s online behavior. Personal data is worth a lot of money for legitimate commercial organizations as well as for malicious parties.
Privacy as a legal obligation
With the arrival of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018, you, as an organization, are responsible for the protection of personal data that you process. In addition, you are obliged to be fully transparent about the personal data that you process, for what purposes the processing takes place and whether the processing is legitimate. In the Netherlands, the Dutch Data Protection Authority supervises compliance with the GDPR by organizations.
Privacy as a natural matter of course
In addition to the legal obligation to properly regulate the privacy and protection of personal data, we notice that stakeholders (your customers, employees, suppliers, etc.) consider privacy and data protection an increasingly important condition for doing business. Privacy shifts from “compliance burden” to a natural, but undeniable, matter of course. Your stakeholders want to be confident that you handle their data with care.
