GDPR - the General Data Protection Regulation - has been a massive topic of conversation and controversy before going into effect on the 25th of May.

Last week we conducted a webinar around the topic of GDPR and demonstrated how reports about Personal Identifiable Information (PII) could be retrieved in structured and unstructured data. This blog post highlights the main talking points of this webinar.
