Beginning in May 2018, the EU gave regulatory agencies greater powers to act against non-compliant organizations.
HOBOKEN, N.J. (PRWEB) August 09, 2018
A NYC area IT consultant and MSP discusses how businesses can comply with the new European data privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which went into effect May 25, 2018, in a new article on the eMazzanti Technologies website. The law applies to all organizations selling to or collecting personal data about customers in the European Union (EU).
The informative article reviews the changes affecting businesses, the penalties of non-compliance and how technology providers can help organizations accelerate their response to the legislation and become GDPR compliant.
“Navigating GDPR compliance issues is not easy for business leaders,” stated Jennifer Mazzanti, CEO, eMazzanti Technologies. “They might consider the help now available from Microsoft and its partners to become GDPR compliant before penalties are assessed.”
Below are a few excerpts from the article, “Technology Partners Enable GDPR Compliance”
“Beginning in May 2018, the EU gave regulatory agencies greater powers to act against non-compliant organizations. Penalties include stiff fines of up to four percent of annual global revenue or 20 million euros, whichever is greater.”
“Implementing a plan for GDPR compliance can prove to be complex. Fortunately, a capable business technology provider can help organizations accelerate their response to the legislation and avoid the penalties.”
“Data management and discovery – The initial step is to discover personal data across your organization and protect it from unauthorized access. This includes regularly indexing and flagging sensitive data.”
“Access governance – By managing user identity and access to sensitive data, organizations can more easily protect privileged activities and enforce data breach detection and notification.”
Benefits of GDPR Compliance
The GDPR provides an opportunity to reevaluate and improve overall business cyber-security strategy and data management. For instance, with the findings of an audit, redundant, obsolete and trivial files will be eliminated. In addition, the transparency and responsibility demonstrated will help build more trusting relationships with customers and the public.
GDPR compliance also allows an increase in marketing return on investment. Once an opt-in policy is implemented and a data subject’s consent to process their personal data is obtained, companies will be able to increase the effectiveness of their digital advertising. They can tailor messages to the specific needs and habits of a clearly defined audience that has more interest in the company’s brand.
