The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on May 25, 2018 and applies to any organization operating, or offering goods and services, within the European Union. The physical location of an organization’s headquarters, operations or data center is irrelevant, it’s all about customer and employee data! The scope of relevant data types subject to the GDPR is not limited to PII only, but includes any information related to a natural person that can be used to identify that person.
Compliance with GDPR involves the secure management, protection and monitoring of this private personal data. These are all dependent on your organization’s ability to identify personal information lurking within their unstructured data repositories… How can you protect it if you don’t know where it is?
Identifying and securing this data is a daunting task for any global organization facing fines… come May, will your organization be compliant, or be the scapegoat?
