do you collect or process information about eu citizens?
If so, you need to get ready for the GDPR's coming into force by May 2018...
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will affect organizations worldwide that have customers or employees in the European Union. GDPR readiness has become important for data controllers and data processors due to requirements such as the appointment of a data protection officer (DPO) for the organization; onerous rules relating to privacy assessments and conducting data inventory/mapping exercises; as well as strict rules around breach management.
What has really caused concern is the maximum fines organization face for a breach of GDPR - up to 4% or annual global turnover or €20 Million (whichever is greater)!
Although many organizations already have some great personal information handling practices in place, it is critical to assess your GDPR compliance...and time is running out!
