Ken Drake, Senior Director of Business Intelligence at Blizzard Entertainment and Adam Hoey, founder of security and privacy innovation firm Potentia Concepts, were tasked with handling GDPR readiness at their respective organizations.
Independently, they realized that third-party vendors played a major part in GDPR compliance: vendors who are experts in what’s addressed within the GDPR could have a hand in helping them become GDPR compliant. But, these same vendors could also potentially undermine compliance by not being GDPR ready themselves.
“You need to really understand who your third-party partners are and what it is they’re doing with this data. It’s critically important,” says Hoey.
Drake agrees, adding, “You’re going to have to change how your company deals with data protection-by-design.”
