How to approach data protection in the smartest possible way

Uncoordinated initiatives and activities have often been a quick reaction to the demanding legal landscape regarding data protection. Having built the first wall of defense, now is the time to make sure that data protection follows efficient principles and maximizes the value of your assets. Why is data protection relevant to every organization?

Data privacy has been continuously gaining importance. Not only have new laws such as GDPR with its high penalties been imposed on companies around the globe. Also, customers have become more aware of their rights and require transparent and secure handling of their personal data. In this context, enterprises are investing heavily into data protection activities. Due to time pressure and demands from different stakeholders, quick, scattered actions and chaotic implementations are often undertaken to quickly meet the regulatory and market requirements.

How to approach the topic in a smart way?

Data protection cannot be reflected in an isolated organizational unit, but must be tightly embedded in all business processes across the value chain. Industry leaders orchestrate the key elements: data privacy and data security with related impact areas. Their data assets are managed more efficiently and access to data is simplified via more trustworthy relationships towards their business partners. This generates increased business opportunities by enabling better insights into customer behavior and faster responses to market dynamics.

There is a range of solutions that can be implemented to streamline data protection management, processes, reporting and documentation activities. These span from CRM systems that handle consent collection to authorization and access management tools that ensure data security. Even AI-enabled solutions can be applied to improve the transparency of data processing activities via information discovery. A solid MDM/data quality strategy promoting single source as well as information minimization principles enables efficient data protection.
