The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to all businesses that process European residents’ data. If your clients are EU-based, you have less than 18 months to update your policies, procedures and systems to achieve compliance with the Regulation.
The GDPR levies fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million (approximately $21 million) and gives data subjects extended rights, including the right to bring legal action against organizations in case of data breach.
IT departments and organizations around the world might find that they lack a clear plan of the immediate actions needed to meet the requirements of the GDPR.
To help you build a basic understanding of the Regulation and lay the foundations of your own GDPR compliance project, IT Governance has launched a new series of webinars, starting in January 2017, that cover essential aspects of the Regulation.
Our first webinar, Accountability under the GDPR and what it means for boards and senior management, will be delivered by IT Governance’s founder and executive chairman, Alan Calder, at 9:00 (CST) on January 19 , 2017. This webinar is designed to inform and provide senior management and boards with a comprehensive understanding of the Regulation and the potential financial and reputation impact the GDPR can have on their organizations.
