GDPR: Your Path to Compliance

How to Think About and Prepare for the General Data Protection Regulation

GDPR enforcement begins on May 25, 2018.

Will your organization be ready?

The penalties for GDPR noncompliance can be enormous – fines up to €20 million or four percent of total worldwide revenue the previous year, whichever is greater. However, if you equip your organization with the right information with which to create a winning compliance strategy, you can steer wide of these penalties and their associated fallout. To that end, here is a collection of resources designed to help your organization successfully tackle GDPR.
