Many organizations do business with organizations who are subject to certain privacy laws. What happens if organizations don’t have any standards for processing personal data and they are required by their business partners to have certain standards? They loose business opportunities as they can’t commit to respecting privacy of individuals whose personal data is entrusted to them.Sooner or later, every country in the region will have a privacy law. Why not start preparing now, and have an advantage when laws come in force?  Use privacy as an advantage with customers, business partners, and have a strong position for the upcoming privacy laws or enhance the state of compliance with the existing laws.
