Managing the Data Risk of Digital Transformation

15th August, 11am BST

“Digital information now moves without boundaries or limits. Data is the new currency of life.”


– Forbes, 2023

In the era of digital transformation, the amount of data generated has witnessed an unprecedented explosion. And it doesn’t appear to be slowing anytime soon. The total global volume of data is expected to grow from 64.2 to 181 zettabytes between 2020 and 2025 [Forbes]. As organisations strive to leverage this vast trove of information, the ability to effectively safeguard it and harness its potential has become a significant differentiator between data-driven and data-dead organisations.


However, alongside this data boom, a concerning complication has emerged. The rise of cyber threats, hackers, and ransomware attacks poses a significant risk to organisations, with the average cost of a data breach reaching a record high of US$4.35 million [IBM Security, 2022]. The implications are even more far-reaching for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), as around 60% fail within six months of a cyber-attack [, 2015]. The evolving landscape of privacy laws and security regulations adds yet another layer of complexity.


Adhering to increasingly stringent legal and contractual obligations presents a formidable challenge that organisations must get right, or they risk severe consequences. As businesses operate across increasingly complex and distributed technology environments, a critical question arises: How can you maximise the value of your data while also protecting it against potential threats and ensuring its integrity without compromise?


Senior decision makers and other top-executives with a focus on technology, data, information security and data protection. This discussion will be valuable to you if you’re looking to unlock the value of data for your organisation.


Attendance is capped to ensure every participant is able to contribute. The meeting is only open to invited participants or those who have been referred by a colleague or our partner, Ground Labs.


A special thank you to Ground Labs for their continued support of the Change Makers Club. Ground Labs enables organisations to discover and remediate data across multiple types and locations. Their solutions, Enterprise Recon and Card Recon, empower organisations to be compliant in an ever-changing state of global and regional regulations. We’re trusted by leading organisations such as McDonald’s, Verifone, THALES and Vodafone. 


All of our roundtables are focused, collaborative and informative. Thanks to a chaired and moderated discussion you will: gain insights and ideas from thought leaders in different industries, benchmark your own plans within a collaborative and confidential environment and network with an exclusive group of senior executives in similar size organisations to you.

We’re committed to supporting our society and environment. When you attend a Change Makers Club event, we pledge to neutralise your carbon footprint. To offset your travel or energy usage we will plant a tree via One Tree Planted. Once mature, the average tree has a net absorption of 30 kg of CO2 per year, which equates to 227 miles of travel by car or 96 hours of office usage. You can see our maths here.
