GDPR Preparation and Compliance

Embedding privacy by design throughout your data processes

The European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect May 25, 2018, and many organizations are planning their approach to compliance. With its emphasis on privacy and consumer rights, GDPR will require changes in the way many companies manage, store, transfer, and delete customer data.

An increased level of accountability is expected with regards to data protection, so you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared all the way down to the process level.

 Why GDPR?

  • GDPR impacts any organization with EU customers or employees. Regardless of your location (EU, US, or elsewhere), you’re accountable if you have EU customers or plans to expand into Europe in the near future.
  • Maintain and secure the trust of your customers and staff by providing assurance that you handle their data properly.
  • Stay focused on your core business by hiring cybersecurity professionals that provide expert assistance with GDPR implementation.
  • Invest in improving your privacy and cybersecurity profile rather than pay large fines to regulators.
