Are you GDPR-ready?

The new EU General Data Protection Regulation looks like a severe turbulence in the European privacy world. As applied from May 2018, the new Regulation has promised fines for data controllers or processors of up to €20 million or 4% of their global annual turnover, placing data protection on a par with anti-trust and anti-bribery sanctions, raising global concerns whether (or how much) it will affect the innovation. Meanwhile global surveys show organizations still lack awareness and preparation for the post-Regulation world, however building high-end compliance programs already. Time to prepare the survival kit:

WHAT SHALL WE EXPECT AND WHAT SHALL WE DO NEXT?
