General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Use Case

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) will affect processing and storage of information in a big way. The potential cost of not being compliant is up to 4% of your organization's global revenue. With May 2018 being the deadline for compliance the time to act is now.

The key aspect of GDPR is that it impacts the collection and use of personal data. Another thing to also note is that GDPR is an overarching regulation for organizations inside and/or outside of the EU that process EU citizen data. As a data controller, you need to know:

  • Where PII data is located within your enterprise
  • Why you have it
  • How you are using it
  • How you are protecting it
  • Demonstrate all of the above to an external regulator.
