Why is this important?
Data protection law aims to empower individuals and give them greater control over their personal data through several rights, which you need to facilitate effectively. Compliance with individual rights minimises the privacy risks to individuals as well as to organisations. It will help you to comply with other data protection requirements, such as the principles. Good data protection compliance enhances your reputation and gives you a competitive edge because it increases the trust and confidence that people have in how you handle personal data.
