In an era of increasing regulatory complexity, including around data privacy, no business that wants to survive can tolerate recklessness. But that does not mean abandoning rapid innovation. Companies have been innovating without being reckless forever – and just because Facebook benefited from its irresponsibility for a while, no company should risk its existence by equating the two.
How do you create an environment to support rapid innovation while protecting the company from its own excesses? Consider the following five keys to moving fast without breaking things.

And data must comply with evolving and increasingly complex regulations. This is especially true in the area of data privacy, given the impending implementation of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The May 2018 deadline for the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) should have organizations scrambling to roll out GDPR-readiness programs.
