The way you protect data is often determined by your employer
You can either positively impact or suppress data protection efforts
Rethink, why and how much should you care about data protection
Have you ever failed to protect data at work? Have you ever missed some security standard that should have been followed? Why?
Typical answers are lack of guidance, no proper training, too many duties, lack of coordination, or no technical safeguards to use. Basing on that, you could easily blame your employer and not care about privacy in your daily work.
What is interesting, I have seen cases where GDPR project was already completed and the reasons stayed the same. On the other hand, I have seen breaches by staff members even though the guidance was clear, there was a training, procedures and safeguards in place. Why? Because they did not care, made human errors, or even acted recklessly.
So no matter how data protection system at your firm looks like, your approach is your choice and I want you to make it a conscious one. What can motivate you to protect data? Let’s go through most typical reasons.
