As we move into a more digitized society, the collection and use of data continues to increase. This influx in data, partnered with challenges complying with data protection and privacy regulations and the absence of a comprehensive global data protection and privacy strategy, has contributed to data breaches and data misusage. In order to reduce these incidents, updates must be made to existing regulations and included in future regulations.
