Trying to identify sources of digital risk for your organisation can feel like searching for a black cat in a dark room. And even if you have a torch, you need to be shining it in the right direction to spot the cat. And of course, it might not be sitting still…. But imagine you can simply turn on all the lights in the room – and when you do, you can see there are several black cats, as well as dozens of mice, spiders (and who knows what else) that you had no idea were there.read more

After the enormous efforts of organisations to comply with the new privacy legislation (GDPR) before 25 May, a new challenge will follow in this privacy area.
