Data Protection & GDPR

The data protection landscape is rapidly changing. As organizations harness the power offered by Digital and personal data, increasingly smart cybercriminals are intent on stealing or compromising that data. Compliance with the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) from May 2018 is thus both a regulatory requirement, a risk management issue and a strategic business imperative.

Avoid the risk of GDPR non-compliance

The EU’s GDPR represents a comprehensive reform of existing data protection laws. It requires a significant change in the way organizations manage personal data in today’s digital operating environment. GDPR encompasses data management and security, including new concepts – transparency and accountability – and a key requirement to notify data breaches. Non-compliance could lead to fines of 4% of an organization’s worldwide turnover or 20 million euro – whichever is higher. Be ready to demonstrate you take appropriate practices to protect personal data.
