General Data Protection Regulation

Supporting your journey towards GDPR compliance

Are you ready for GDPR?

The deadline for General Data Protection regulation (GDPR) compliance is drawing nearer. From 25 May 2018 organisations will need to ensure they have governance controls in place to hold, store and manage data according to the new regulations.

What is GDPR? 

GDPR is the new European legislation standard for data. It’s designed to strengthen data protection across the EU and empower individuals to take control of their data. GDPR puts in place strict governance for organisations that host or use personal data, and the penalties for not following the rules are high. Fines for data breaches could be significant (up to 4% of global turnover), severely impacting on performance, profit and reputation.

Understanding the challenging journey to GDPR compliance

Tackling GDPR requires a holistic approach that stretches beyond data management. Organisations typically underestimate the scope of activity required and the amount of time needed to implement any changes. So the challenge for many organisations is to balance the complexity of compliance activities with the available budgets, resources and time. And this is where Sopra Steria can help.
