If you are reading this article, independently of the industry you work on, by now you’ve probably heard of the General Data Protection Regulation, commonly referred to as GDPR. This regulation is currently being considered the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years.

Given the magnitude of such a regulatory change, it is very useful and good practice to regularly question all streams within this change project and anticipate any potential issue.
