What you'll learn

  • Learn how companies are addressing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and how AI and other technologies might extend their capabilities


Data protection has always been important; it’s now becoming urgent. The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) should not be taken lightly. Organizations that fail to comply could face high fines, civil actions, and damage to their reputations, while those that use their GDPR program to spur a broader data transformation may be able to capture additional business flexibility and value. These are compelling reasons to treat the new regulation as a high priority for the whole organization and not just as a compliance issue.

Kayvaun Rowshankish and Alexis Trittipo explore the extent to which firms have addressed the regulation (the deadline being imminent) and how they might build further sustainability into their capabilities, especially through the use of AI and other innovative technologies. They also detail the impact of GDPR on organizations’ analytics strategies.
