Issues and challenges

Wilmar is Asia’s leading agribusiness group. It works across the entire value chain of the agricultural commodity business, from cultivation, processing and merchandising to manufacturing a wide range of agricultural products, e.g., oils, fats and oleochemicals. The Wilmar Group, with headquarters in Singapore, has around 90,000 employees and over 500 manufacturing plants and distributes its products in 50+ countries.

Wilmar Europe Holdings B.V. (WEH) is the European division with its headquarters in Rotterdam and six offices and factories. WEH was looking to identify potential risks, in particular around its holdings of personal data, and assess its readiness for the GDPR regulation. WEH wanted to reduce risk and improve accountability by analyzing and classifying its data in accordance with Article 30 of the Regulation – recording of data processing activities, the purpose data was collected and categories of data.

WEH needed a solution to map personal data within its unstructured data in order to identify where data is located (ownership), identify ways in which it can be secured and optimize the data assessment process.

"GDPR is a major challenge, with unstructured data a serious concern. We want to be sure that we are managing all our data compliantly and reduce risk to the business. Orange Business Services delivered a solution that gave us insight into our unstructured data and contributed to fine-tuning of our policies for managing our data in a GDPR world. They have proved themselves to be a valuable partner."
