Including what you should know about the EU GDPR

‘Organisations cannot reap the benefits of Analytics and Artificial Intelligence if they do not have a data Strategy’
Did you know?
More than 90% of Singaporean companies are concerned about the EU GDPR which comes into effect in May this year? “The risk of non compliance could be high, running into hefty fines as high as 20 million euros or 4% annual turnover, whichever is higher,”
Sheena Chin, Country Manager, Veritas, Singapore
The massive growth in the volumes and variety of data in the organisation requires that we need to rethink their Data Governance strategies. As organisations move towards digital transformation and analytics as well as aspiring to gain competitive advantage through new artificial intelligence technologies, Data Governance is becoming vital for such efforts; indeed without ensuring appropriate management and protection of data not only organisations will not benefit much from digital transformation but they leave themselves open to reputational and legal compliance risks if they fail to protect data. Although most organisations are now investing significant resources in analytics and digital transformation solutions to drive their business, they risk to lose the potential value of their investment if they do not change their current Data Governance practices which may no longer apply to the new environment.
