Your GDPR Journey: The Path to Compliance

The European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation will come into effect on the 25th of May, 2018. This regulation marks a significant change in the EU data protection and privacy regime. It will repeal and replace the current EU Data Protection Directive, which forms the basis for the existing data protection regimes in Ireland, the UK and across Europe. Grounded in industry experience, it is the remit of this paper to provide a pragmatic approach to help put your organisation on the road to compliance.

The purpose of this paper is to guide organisations through the practical steps required to become GDPR compliant.

First, the paper outlines what GDPR is in relation to IT functions. Second, the paper outlines a four stage methodology for compliance. Finally, the paper outlines next steps.
