The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on May 25, 2018, bringing with it steep penalties for compliance failures. If your organization controls or processes personal data of European Union (EU) citizens — even if you are located outside of the EU — GDPR compliance is not optional. Yet most organizations are unclear on exactly what changes are required to comply with GDPR provisions, how those changes will affect their business, and the severity of penalties for non-compliance.
In this white paper, we provide a checklist for complying with EU GDPR requirements, which includes:
- Educating key decision makers on GDPR and its impacts on your organization
- Conducting an end-to-end inventory and audit to see where personal data is located, processed, stored or transmitted
- Reviewing and updating current privacy and data protection policies
- Implementing new, appropriate data protection safeguards
