Taking Action

Conforming to the GDPR is a serious undertaking that should be driven by senior management in conjunction with the governance, risk, and compliance teams.  IT and information security have a large part to play because of their technical capabilities and ability to monitor, control and secure data, devices and track user access and file movement.
