If you are a business that manages a large amount of personal data from EU citizens then the clock is ticking.
Compliance with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is mandatory from 25 May 2018 and there are big penalties for those companies that fall foul. There will be fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or a maximum of €20 million for the most serious infringements – that’s a serious blow for a large enterprise and a potential knock-out blow to any small business.
However the GDPR is also a big opportunity to understand the data you have and analyse how you can use it better as a basis for innovation and growth.
SystemsUp has teamed up with independent security consultants Company85 so we can help you understand how to prepare for the new regulation. The aim is to work with you to help your senior managers and key stakeholders understand how the GDPR will impact your organisation by highlighting where the biggest risks lie and analysing what needs to change in order for you to be compliant.
The Information Commissioner’s Office has issued a 12 step readiness guide. Yet despite the threat of huge penalties, and at a time when the importance of cyber security and data protection is being stressed at all levels of government and business, many organisations have not addressed the implications of the GDPR. Don’t be one of them. It’s not too late!
