Information Management, March 7th, 2018
If you haven’t started down the road to compliance with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, let’s face it, you’re probably not going to hit the May 25, 2018 deadline.
If this describes your situation, don’t worry, you’re not alone. According to Forrester, 80 percent of companies affected by the GDPR will not be compliant when the regulations take effect.
Even if you’re going to be late to the party, doing certain things to become compliant can help your business beyond avoiding fines. Let’s look at what exactly the GDPR is, and what you can do on the data management and processing side to be prepared.
Even though the GDPR is a European regulation, it will affect companies across the globe. Any organization that deals with the personal data of any European “natural persons,” has to be compliant with the GDPR -- at least when it comes to those European citizens.
