GDPR Compliance

Cyber Risk Solutions

Stringent new regulations for handling and protecting the private data of European Union (EU) residents became effective on May 25, 2018. Many companies are unsure about how to design or implement a program for complying with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements.

GDPR Caution

Failure to implement defensible GDPR compliance can cost companies greatly. Offenders face fines of up to 4% of global revenue. Legal fees, mitigation expenses, redress by individual citizens, and brand damage further raise huge potential costs of non-compliance. Even smaller organizations hoping to “fly under the radar” are not immune from investigation and penalties.
