Today, many major organisations rely on cloud technology to support over 1,000 of their business applications, many of which are built within organisations without explicit approval – a phenomenon known as ‘shadow IT’. The problem of organisational misalignment is exacerbated when you consider new data protection standards coming out of the EU that all businesses dealing with the personal data of EU citizens are obliged to uphold, at the risk of attracting huge regulator penalties. The General Data Protection Regulation is shaking up the way we think about data privacy and handle consumers’ personal data. Facebook, Google and a swathe of other global brand names are already feeling the GDPR’s pressure, and a number of smaller businesses have already been fined for data transgressions committed since the new laws came into play in May 2018. To satisfy the GDPR’s demands for accountability and good practice when it comes to data handling, it is essential that organisations maintain meticulous records of processing activities.
