With just over 12 months to go until organizations need to comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), it’s more important than ever to look at what you need to do to prepare.
What is the GDPR?
The GDPR will take effect across the European Union on May 25, 2018, superseding the 28 current national data protection laws based on the 1995 Data Protection Directive (DPD).
It will apply not only to EU-based companies, but to any organization that processes EU residents’ data.
Organizations that fail to comply with this new Regulation could be fined up to 4% of their annual global turnover or €20 million ($21.3 million) – whichever is greater. More information about the GDPR >>
