Is your company ready for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)? There are only 12 months left before it goes into effect.
The GDPR strengthens privacy rights of individuals who live in European Union (EU) countries, giving them better control of the personal information that companies have about them. The legislation also provides a clear set of rules for companies to follow when handling personal information.
One of the most significant aspects of GDPR is that it affects all companies, anywhere in the world. If a company processes information about European Union citizens then it must ensure GDPR compliance.
GDPR will increase enforcement too. Organizations that are not fully compliant face fines of up to 4% of their global turnover – along with the damaged reputation and customer confidence that a data breach can cause.
Here are the main steps that companies should take now to prepare.
