Cloud-based customer relationship management software supplier Donorfy has taken the initiative in putting data protection officers nationwide out of their misery and compiling what can only be described as the definitive soundtrack to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The 78-track Spotify playlist – boasting suitably themed hits new and old, ranging from Dua Lipa’s New rules to the Stevie Wonder classic Signed, sealed, delivered (I’m yours) – is sure to see all those database managers out there cranking up the volume and embracing the looming deadline with relish.
If it hasn’t cheered bosses up, it’s at least removed everyone else’s dour image of them hunched over desks full of paperwork in bleak silence, agonising about data protection policies between intermittent glances at photos of the families they once got to eat dinner with. Now we can only visualise them grooving about like Drake after hours.
With that in mind, this playlist could spell trouble for companies everywhere. We’ve all been there when a deadline’s looming. One moment you’re tapping your feet to some Carly Rae Jepsen, the next it’s 25 May, you have 143 missed calls and your stomach’s being pumped by a judgemental doctor in Bangkok Hospital.
