As you may know, the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be in full effect on May 25, 2018. As we discussed in a previous article, the aims of this regulation are to protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of natural persons and to also ensure their right to protection of personal data as well as the free movement of said data.
The date may seem far away, but it gives just enough time for your organization to make the proper changes in the IT framework to comply. Gartner predicts that by the end of 2018, more than 50 percent of companies affected by the GDPR will not be in full compliance with its requirements. In order to subvert hefty fines and tarnished reputations - organizations should prepare for the regulation now.
