GDPR is considered as the biggest change in data protection for 20 years and organisationsshould take appropriate measures to understand, prepare and update policies and procedures to comply with the new regulation. Businesses face increasingly complex and difficult challenges associated with collecting, storing, disclosing, and securing information and data systems.
