Major changes in data privacy legislation are having far-reaching effects on how organizations are permitted to collect, store and use personal data.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), together with its successor, the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), have imposed strict rules for handling personal data, and the pressure on businesses is set to intensify as new regional data protection laws come into force across the world.
Managing the vast quantities of personal information to be found around any business is a major challenge.
