New Data Protection Law Takes Effect in May 2018

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation marks a major shift in data privacy laws—and unlike the EU Data Protection Directive that preceded it, GDPR carries the force of law.

Organisations that don’t abide by GDPR face significant fines. These penalties apply to all organisations that process data of EU residents, no matter where in the world the organisation is located.

There is still time to get your organisation in compliance. And the earlier you start, the easier the process will be. HelpSystems solutions can make GDPR compliance simpler and easier. The resources below will help you understand GDPR’s requirements and what they mean for you and your organisation.
