The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a replacement for the current EU Data Protection Directive. GDPR is intended to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union. The Regulation aims to restore the balance between the interests of the Data Subject and the Data Controller.
Since 25th May 2018, GDPR now affects every organisation that processes EU resident’s personal data. Being a Regulation, rather than a Directive, it requires compliance by all EU member states.
GDPR compliance requires that you effectively engage, and work closely with, key business stakeholders to deliver a GDPR compliant business operating model. Our GDPR for Dummies Guide describes the specific activities required to prepare your organisation for GDPR.
