Insight from the Facilitator

“As organisations embark on their digital transformation journey, there is an increasing recognition of the immense value associated with the way personal data of customers is being used and managed.

Organisations must take responsibility and demonstrate that they are able to handle personal data under their custody in a responsible manner. This accountability-based approach in managing the personal data of customers behoves upon the organisation to be able to put in place the appropriate data protection governance structure, policies and practices.”
