Why do you think it is important to teach and train developers in data management skills?
"Training and building awareness among IT teams on data management is the basis in achieving a notable shift in the corporate mind-set towards data privacy, and where people start to see data protection measures not as a burden but as a foundation to business. The developer is integral part of building and designing the systems, and they have the key to a company’s security awareness to in turn build higher quality products and obtain customer satisfaction."
