In part one of a two part series, we examine some of the challenges that companies face in terms of the evolving privacy and data protection landscape. Data protection and privacy issues are now bedrock strategic issues for companies across the world and Information Security professionals are now under even more pressure to ensure that data remains secure. The value of data as an intangible asset continues to grow and legislation and regulation is becoming ever more stringent. The onus is on companies to comply or suffer the consequences. This is going to require a whole new breed of information security professional. In part two of this series (in next month’s newsletter) we’ll look at the argument for and against a new role combining Chief Security and Privacy Officer in this rapidly evolving regulatory environment.
The exit of the United Kingdom from the EU has caused turmoil in world markets and has far reaching consequences for those companies in the European Union doing business with the country – and vice versa. There has also been some uncertainty about how the authorities based in London will be treating data security and privacy issues. The consensus seems to be that companies doing business with the second largest economy in Europe (after Germany) should be adopting a ‘business as usual’ approach. However, will this necessarily be the case in the future? Will global companies with a British connection (including those in Asia) be forced to revisit how they treat data security and privacy issues when dealing with the United Kingdom – and will British companies move away from the rules that have been set in place by Brussels? We take a closer look.
