Impacts of GDPR

The impacts of GDPR made simple

Download our GDPR and Managing Data Risk for Dummies Guide to find out exactly what your organization needs to uncover data risks, properly handle data in the cloud, and avoid GDPR fines.

What is GDPR?



About GDPR

Effective from 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to give organisations greater responsibility for the personal data they hold and use, and citizens more control how their own data is used.

What’s the impact of the GDPR?

In short, the rules around data governance have become stricter, and the fines for breaches are greater. All organizations will have to change the way they manage, process and store personal data. But data privacy doesn’t have to be a burden – some businesses are using data privacy for competitive advantage. It can also mean better protection for your systems – and your reputation.
