Data Protection Regulation is an 'opportunity, not a threat'
Businesses have been told to view the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as an opportunity to gain a competitive edge.
New legislation governing use of personal data by organisations, and the rights of individuals, takes effect on May 25.
And 250 business leaders at the Danske Bank Advantage GDPR business breakfast in the Europa Hotel in Belfast were urged to use the change to improve their reputation with customers.
Fedelma Good, director in PwC's data protection strategy, law and compliance team, said GDPR could have a silver lining for firms.
