Cyber security – BDO’s ‘The intrinsic value of GDPR’ white paper

20 February 2018

From 25 May 2018, Australian businesses operating locally, internationally and with interests in the EU may need to comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) guidelines if they have an establishment in the European Union (EU), if they offer goods and services in the EU, or if they monitor the behaviours of individuals in the EU.

According to the 500 global business leaders surveyed in the BDO Global Risk Landscape report 2017, disruptive technologies, reputational risk and cybersecurity are the challenges most likely to test businesses over the next ten years.

In this paper, BDO seeks to demonstrate how building a mature information security and data privacy programme can enhance the professionalism of a company’s employees and reinforce an organisation’s public reputation.

It provides insight on the intrinsic value and sometimes more difficult to quantify hidden benefits that organisations can achieve through meeting and exceeding their data protection obligations. This is relevant to Australian organisations operating locally, internationally and with interests in the EU.
