Crossing the Data Delta

Be sure to check out the book on March 1st on Amazon when it is available for free download.

Given the current hype around the new General Data Protection Regulation, this is worthy of another mention under its own heading. GDPR is effectively where Entity’s customers will Cross the Data Delta from a compliance perspective. No doubt, the General Data Protection Regulation will mean collecting more – not less – data about “person” in the context of “consent” in the way that you use that person data – fundamentally, a data (or Big Data) management challenge with the need for a clear understanding of the regulations. Entity has studied the regulations and has the data management credentials to help you along the GDPR journey, regardless of the underlying technology platform.

Furthermore, we believe in balancing obligation – GDPR compliance in this case – with opportunity. If you need to invest in customer-centric compliance why not explore how this can actually add value to your business, while demonstrating commitment to GDPR that the regulatory authorities will be demanding in your local markets.
