Prepare for GDPR with Four Key Capabilities

As the world becomes increasingly digitized, many organizations have or are obtaining all sorts of personal data. Can you imagine if that data got into the wrong hands? Large corporations like Best Buy, Kmart, Delta and Panera have been subject to data breaches within the past few weeks. Losing customer’s personal data can seriously damage an organization’s reputation. The European Union has passed a new data protection law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR will be enforced on May 25, 2018 and affects all companies that handle personal data of European citizens. Companies that are non-compliant with GDPR face heavy sanctions that can be as high as 4% of global turnover or 20 million euros (whichever greater). The purpose of GDPR is to strengthen the digital rights of individuals. Why a new data protection law?Digitization means an exponential increase in data including personal data. Stealing it becomes more lucrative. The EU realizes this and has set out to create a safer digital environment. What are the impacts for companies?Organizational changes, contractual changes, processes, technologicalPuts completely new demands on data handling.
