GDPR affects most global businesses, not just EU ones and will challenge teams to focus on their global reach. It is also making the link between data privacy, physical security and cyber a lot closer. The creation of new data privacy jobs, is going to exacerbate the skills gap in the industry and companies are going to have to fight even harder to attract and retain the best talent. GDPR has got the attention of the board, and they are going to require more from their security teams. If people in these teams, can not articulate well to the business, they are going to be replaced, or ineffective. GDPR will put more pressure on security teams and increase salaries, in an industry where increases are already way above average.
