GDPR is here!

70% of firms say that they are NOT ready for GDPR1. Enforcement of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect today i.e. May 25, 2018, and we wanted to ensure that you were aware of what the regulation is and that you’re ready.

The GDPR sets a new and higher bar for privacy rights, security, and compliance. While it is a European regulation, the potential impact is quite broad. It applies to any organization that offers goods and services to people in the EU or collects and analyzes data tied to EU residents, no matter where they are located.

GDPR is a complex regulation that may require significant changes in to how you collect, process, and manage data. If you are unsure about your preparedness and ability to meet GDPR on an on-going basis, we can help.

Steps to get started for GDPR:

1 Discover Identify what personal data you have and where it resides
2 Manage Govern how personal data is used and accessed
3 Protect Establish security controls to prevent, detect, and respond to vulnerabilities & data breaches
4 Report Keep required documentation, manage data requests and breach notifications
