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.
25th of May 2018 is the deadline.
From this date, GDPR will affect every organisation that processes EU resident’s personal data. Being a Regulation, rather than a Directive, it requires compliance by all EU member states.
So what can you do between now and the point at which this Regulation comes into force? GDPR Readiness requires that you effectively engage, and work closely with, key business stakeholders to deliver a GDPR compliant business operating model. Our GDPR Implementation Guide describes the specific activities required to prepare your organisation for GDPR.
