Five Essential Steps for GDPR Compliance

According to IDC, the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant privacy regulation update since 1995. GDPR was passed in April 2016 and will take effect on May 25, 2018.

Every organization that collects and/or processes data of people in the EU is subject to GDPR and needs to comply. The penalty for major violations can be up to 20 million euros or 4% of your company’s annual global revenue.

GDPR sets the bar for privacy protection high, so it is important to understand some of the key principles of the regulation.

This IDC report provides a five step plan to get you started on the journey to GDPR compliance by May 2018 and shows you how using a data management platform enables you to address them:

  • Set up a cross-functional data governance team.
  • Launch a data mapping and analytics project.
  • Use a single platform for data governance and policy management, and extend data governance and control to cloud-based data.
  • Define state of the art in terms of technology attributes and processes with regard to structured and unstructured data.
  • Develop an incident response process for communication with both the local data protection authority and with the public so that you can control what information gets disseminated once you get breached.

If you have not started to prepare for GDPR, you can't afford to delay. May 2018 is fast approaching, and getting GDPR compliance right takes time.
