You’ve never heard about it? Be sure you will. But before revealing the meaning of GDPR, let’s go for facts checking.
Brussels, 25 January 2012– The European Commission has today proposed a comprehensive reform of the EU’s 1995 data protection rules to strengthen online privacy rights and boost Europe’s digital economy. Technological progress and globalisation have profoundly changed the way our data is collected, accessed and used. In addition, the 27 EU Member States have implemented the 1995 rules differently, resulting in divergences in enforcement.

This means not only how you identify and secure the personal data in your IT but also how you accommodate new transparency requirements, how you detect and report personal data breaches, and how you train privacy on both sides, personal and professional.
… and you should not wait until the regulation takes effect to prepare. Start reviewing your privacy and data management practices now. Regardless of the vertical your company is, these rules must apply to avoid penalties of up to € 1 million.
This will require big changes and significant investments by organizations that operate in Europe. Many global IT players have already anticipated this bonanza. One of them: Microsoft.

May I advise you to consider the duo Enterprise Mobility + Security coupled with Windows 10 as The lethal weapon to comply with GPDR. How to implement it? That’s another story.
