Re: Ivory tower IT

If it was HR data spread around the enterprise then any GDPR grief would be deserved - but your 'forward-looking' organisations either haven't been around for more than 2 years, have amazingly simple and tied down IT systems or are wilfully self deluded if they think they are on top of the 'list of names and emails in a spreadsheet/printout/filing cabinet' that seems to exercise the GDPR purists so much. Or they just took a 'nuke it all from orbit' approach, which might work if the past means nothing to you - might not work so well if your business is all about managing data and knowledge that has been collected in the past.
