There’s a prevailing enterprise perception that compliance with data protection regulations and standards, such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU, Payment Card Industry (PCI), International Standards Organization (ISO) and many others is a burden: limiting the leverage of data. However, the core requirement of compliance—better control of data—has multiple downstream benefits. When compliance objectives are aligned with existing business objectives, the business can experience net gain.
For many organizations that want to adopt streaming data, strengthening their governance protocol is a key requirement. While this certainly poses a challenge for data protection regulations and standards, it also limits the potential of data in broader enterprise initiatives that look to maximize the value of information.
