Export Control and Data Protection

Driving secure and enhanced end-to-end data governance

Data is the lifeblood of today’s most successful businesses. Without an effective data strategy, no organisation can survive and thrive. This means that data governance – protecting, securing and managing data in the most effective way possible – is more important than ever. Any oversight can expose businesses to significant fines.

Part of this is ensuring compliance with ever more stringent regulations governing areas like such as export control.
