The GDPR deadline approaches
As the deadline for GDPR compliance races towards us (May 2018), the insurance industry faces a balancing act — to put in place an effective compliance strategy that doesn’t impede business as usual, stifle innovation or inhibit growth. The big question on everyone’s lips is: how can you implement GDPR compliance in a way that delivers commercial value?

Why GDPR is good news

Also, GDPR and the transparency it introduces has the potential to generate greater customer trust and enable growth. The new regulation will have a positive effect on the quality of data and on the customer experience, including more precise targeting, pricing and underwriting.
