Key Challenges Addressed

Typically, a shortage of in-house expertise or a lack of recess can prevent them from performing an in-depth gap assessment or audit. Given that such an assessment is the first step of maturing any data privacy programme and ensuring compliance with relevant legislation, this is a significant obstacle.

Beyond completing an assessment, understanding how to implement any necessary remediations also significant data privacy expertise and capabilities.
