With the right approach, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) obligations can be a business opportunity rather than a burden – if addressed in the right way.
BAE Systems believes that GDPR can be an opportunity to use data as a true business asset for:
- Managing your compliance obligations by adopting a privacy-led operating model and encouraging a privacy culture across the organisation
- Harnessing the power of your data by promoting effective and privacy compliant data management practices that enable business to capitalise on the value of data, translate big data analytics into concrete business insights and promote rich data-driven services
- Safeguarding your data by establishing a robust and efficient data privacy and data security controls framework and enabling privacy by design and by default
- Enhancing brand trust by promoting a transparent privacy model and rethinking value exchange to enable better customer engagement.
