So, Debbie, we were just beginning to talk a little bit about privacy. Given the number of regulations and the complexity around complying with the various regulations that are out there. We were just talking about how much of this is cross functional.

So, what are your thoughts about the challenges for the privacy team in engaging the cross-functional people within the organization to talk about privacy and understand the privacy requirements.
