Imagine a future in which finance can monitor business performance in real time and provide results to stakeholders where and when they need them. Imagine it can close the books in two days and fully explain what drove the results. And that it can identify profitable customer segments and guide sales to those customers, or scan the horizon, preparing contingency plans to address the impact of things like market volatility. In essence, imagine the business benefits of having a finance function that provides timely, actionable insight and is a key partner to strategic decision making.

The European Commission is finalising the ePrivacy Regulation (ePR)1, which may become effective by the end of 2018. The ePrivacy Regulation, which protects the right to respect for private life and communications, is one of the key pillars of the EU’s Digital Single Market Strategy. This new regulation is designed to be ‘future proof’: all existing and future communication technologies are and will be subject to it. Although many insurance companies are already changing their digital strategies, the ePR will have a disruptive effect on the industry. ePrivacy Regulation in a nutshell: The ePR will replace the existing ePrivacy Directive2, which was revised in 2009. The new regulation includes several modifications to address current trends in digital markets and it entails a considerable extension of scope. The key goal of the ePR is to protect electronic communications of natural and legal persons and to protect the information stored in those persons’ terminal equipment.
