The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years - we're here to make sure you're prepared.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new law designed to increase privacy rights for individuals in the European Union (EU), to create consistency across multiple jurisdictions, and to hold companies accountable. Under GDPR, organizations can’t get away with egregious misuse of personal information or they’ll face big fines. Plus they’ll also have to protect the information with “appropriate security” measures as well.
The compliance deadline is May 25, 2018. Of course, it’s far too early to predict the weather on that day, but it’s not too soon to prepare your organization for GDPR. Just the opposite. In fact, the law is 260 pages with 99 rules (called “Articles or Law”) that you must follow. They cover not only individuals’ privacy rights, but also include cybersecurity principles necessary to properly protect personal information. It requires notification of a data breach within 72 hours of discovery. That’s not a lot of time.
So here’s where we ask: How ready are you for GDPR?
