Following the implementation of the new General Data Protect Regulation on 25 May 2018, organizations should now be fully compliant with their national interpretation of this far-reaching data protection standard. The reality is that most are not; whether through their inappropriate use of online cookies or ineffective physical data security, businesses continue to struggle with the increasing pressure from regulators to apply the Regulation. Non-compliance is widely due to misinterpretation, lack of real-world thinking, and challenges in balancing costs against business practicalities. This book provides insight into how to achieve effective compliance in a realistic, no-nonsense and efficient way. The authors have over 100 years' collective international experience in security, compliance and business disciplines and know what it takes to keep companies secure and in-line with regulators' demands. Whether your organization needs to swiftly adopt GDPR standards or apply them in Business as Usual this book provides a wide range of recommendations and explicit examples. With the likelihood of high-profile penalties causing major reputational damage, this book explains how to reduce risk, run a remedial project, and take immediate steps towards mitigating gaps. Written in plain English, it provides an invaluable international reference for effective GDPR adoption.
