“The best part of the GDPR has been organisations realising that they’ve been ignoring Data Protection for the last 20 years, and in order to get on board with the GDPR requirements they had to do that last 20 years of work as well as the new stuff” says Rowenna Fielding Senior Data Protection Lead, Protecture.Its resulted in a huge change in attitude, process and culture towards Data Protection, which has been really positive, even if it did arise from panic.
