The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) raised the bar for protection of privacy rights by making each business accountable for how it processes personal data. Protecting personal data is not just a matter of legal risk. The reputational risks to a business that result from security breaches or a failure to comply with data protection laws are very real and significant.
