More than ever, citizens around the world are concerned about what organisations do with their personal data. As many high-profile breaches have demonstrated, there are significant risks for both individuals and businesses when things go wrong.
In this context, regulations have been evolving over the past few years. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Privacy Shield have come into force to lead businesses towards compliance with Data Privacy best practice. Mazars provides businesses with the support they need to ensure adequate compliance with data protection regulations and alignment with widely adopted and recognisable data management frameworks.
