The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the biggest overhaul of European data privacy laws in 20 years. The GDPR comes into effect on 25 May 2018, which leaves organizations with less than 14 months to develop and update business processes, policies and systems to comply with the GDPR’s requirements to protect personal data.
To be ready by May 25th, 2018, preparation needs to begin now because it can take up to a year or more to become compliant. According to Gartner, over 50% of companies will not be ready for GDPR compliance by May 2018.
The cost of non-compliance could be devastating, and even fatal to many companies as you can be fined up to 4% of global annual revenue or €20 million (whichever is higher) and subjected to potential criminal charges.
To fully comply with GDPR, you need to be able to discover and understand your entire data landscape, including both the documented and the ‘hidden’, undocumented data that resides within your systems. You need a solution that can quickly and cost effectively automate the data discovery process.
