COVID-19 has undoubtedly changed how things are done in our organisations, be it working from home (WFH) or in the office. We are continually challenged with regards to how we use personal data in our respective functions.

With the number of data breaches recently, the lapse in data protection continues to haunt management as they navigate and lead the organisation in this volatile environment.

Join us in this webinar to understand the potential data protection risks within an organisation, learn how to build a robust data protection framework and be a game-changer in your industry.
