The impact of GDPR on treasury

The biggest shake-up in data privacy regulation is upon us with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) going live on 25th May this year. GDPR sets a new bar for global data protection rules by governing the way organisations collect, use and store personal data concerning EU citizens. At its core is the focus on unambiguous consent of the individual for their data to be held in some instances, and the granting of new rights to secure their protection. The objective is to better protect EU citizens from privacy and data breaches.

Portrait of Diane Reyes

Never in my memory has there been a more exciting time to be in treasury. The evolution of digital technologies, at both the platform level (think mobile collections and distributed ledger) and at the tool level (think Virtual Accounts, APIs and artificial intelligence) is creating unprecedented opportunities for treasury to get greater control over their cash.

Of course, there is always a flip side to opportunity and the rise of digital has also exposed treasury teams to cyber threats and increased regulatory scrutiny, especially in the area of data management.

To help treasurers make sense of the opportunities and threats, we will be publishing podcasts across these themes, sharing insights that we hope will afford treasurers with ideas to grow and thrive.

I hope you will find these podcasts useful.
