You may have noticed a thing called GDPR in the past few months in your inbox.
But compliance with data regulations is an ongoing headache for many CIOs, with occasional spotlights like GDPR thrown onto the subject over time. The fluidity of data in complex, web-enabled systems means that it’s going to continue to be an issue, and I’m presuming the next spotlight will be the first big company thrown under the GDPR bus, which can only be a matter of time.
Compliance is an interesting beast, though. It’s one thing to demonstrate compliance, and that usually comes through large volumes of online training and multiple choice questions and tick boxes in learning management systems. However, actually being compliant is a different beast, and often requires a level of local pragmatism that the processes in large organisations mitigate out of existence.
But anyway, everyone now is cool about GDPR so we’ll just ignore that pile of other people’s business cards that’s stuck in your desk drawer, won’t we?
I’ve recently launched Stamp London’s first physical product – a set of playing cards called CIO Priorities. You can find out more about them here, and order a set for yourself here (or simply download the PDF and print them out).
