The old saying “In God we trust. All others must bring data” couldn’t be more relevant these days. In this generation, data has become the most valuable asset in business — with positive and negative consequences. In Europe, we’ve been protected by the EU General Data Protection Regulations since 2018, and Ireland has its own Data Protection office, aiming to keep our online information safe, and ensuring companies only retain essential information about clients and stakeholders.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, digitalisation has become vital for the survival of businesses of all sizes. The need to comply with data protection has helped these businesses improve customer experience, revitalise marketing initiatives and get higher quality data from their customers, among other advantages.
We hope our crash course has got you up to speed on current data regulations — but if you still need extra help, contact us today and check what our team can do for you. From advice to guidance, we can review your website to find out how you can be more data-compliant — among other services that will guarantee better results.
