With data growing in importance to organisations, 2019 will raise some tough questions for businesses in terms of regulation and management.

While we had the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) across European Union member states in 2018, it’s this year that will see this regulation truly borne out, explained William Fry technology partner Leo Moore.

Data Subject Access Requests are also expected to continue rising as “people become more aware of their rights under the GDPR over the course of the next year”.

This, as well as questions around Brexit, the Schrems II case and the ePrivacy Regulation, will be plenty to occupy CEOs and data managers throughout 2019.
