Data Protection Officers (DPOs) are the guardians of privacy and security within organizations. They are entrusted with the monumental task of safeguarding sensitive information. Due to the constant evolution of regulatory requirements their roles have become increasingly complex. Are spreadsheets and basic redaction tools still suitable? Just like the Information Commissioner’s Office we don’t think so.  ComplyKEY was created to provide DPOs with efficient tools to revolutionize their data management process effortlessly. Here’s how compliance software improves data privacy management for DPOs:
