Salesforce Data Protection Officer: What the World Needs Now is GDPR (Diginomica)


GDPR was a big theme at last week’s Salesforce World Tour event in London, hardly surprising with the clock running down to Friday’s deadline. It was indicative of the importance of the new regulation that Lindsey Finch, Salesforce Senior VP of Global Privacy and Product Legal and now its first Data Protection Officer, was flown in from the U.S. to take a high profile at the conference.

Finch is currently spending much of her time talking to the company’s global customers to find out how they are looking at GDPR. It seems that quite a few are taking the obvious option, simply taking the principles of GDPR and applying them to all personal data irrespective of where the database resides.
