GDPR 2018 – Get It Right With Eident Training

In May 2018, a new European Union (EU) privacy regulation goes into effect with broad reaching implications for organisations around the  world. The regulation, called the General Data Protection Regulation  (GDPR), introduces new requirements on privacy, security, and  compliance for organisations that offer goods and services to European  Union (EU) residents.

The GDPR sets new standards for privacy and personal data

The GDPR applies more broadly than many people think. The law imposes new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits,  and other organisations that offer goods and services to people in EU or that collect and analyze data tied to EU residents — no matter  where they are in the world.

GDPR is applicable to organisations of all sizes and all industries.

Steps to get started with GDPR compliance.

  1. Discover – Identify what personal data you have and where it resides
  2. Manage – Govern how personal data is used and accessed
  3. Protect – Establish security controls to prevent, detect, and respond to vulnerabilities & data breaches
  4. Report – Keep required documentation, manage data requests, and breach notifications
