The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has drastic changes in the way organizations handle personal data, whether it be customer, employee or other sensitive data. Officially in full force as of May 2018, most business, government and public-sector entities that process European Union residents’ personal data need to modify their data management approaches to comply with this new regulation – and avoid substantial fines and bad publicity. The GDPR also applies to any organization that is hosting Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in the EU, regardless of the end user’s location.

Organizations of all sizes need to define and establish their new processes to be in compliance with the GDPR.

This document offers;

  • An overview of the GDPR and its effects 
  • The background of GDPR
  • Its key rules and penalties
  • Recommended best practices

Its content is intended primarily for a non-specialist IT, security or C-level audience interested in how to meet the requirements of this historic milestone in data protection.
