Compliance to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is mandatory for any business involved in dealing with the personal data of EU residents. Assuring that your compliance plan is correct is not something that should be left to chance.

Increasingly, senior executives and line managers are more and more concerned about the impact of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that takes effect May 25, 2018. Most of them understand that this new law will have a huge impact, but the extent and areas of impact are not always clear. Some of them sponsor the change initiative to drive compliance with this law. As they review these plans, they remain uncertain whether the current plans for compliance will be sufficient. They fail to achieve a solid understanding of the law and do not feel sufficiently knowledgeable to challenge their colleagues who are working on the compliance approach. Quite often, their GDPR knowledge is built upon the information shared by the very colleagues who present the GDPR compliance plans. In the best case, the best in class and most confident ones have attended a few events on GDPR. The story does not differ for those working on GDPR compliance plans because, up until now, there has been very limited information available in the market.

Consulting firms have recently started to bring forth their perspectives on GDPR; however, the truth is that most are talking to customers to learn from them with the intention to improve what they aim to provide.

In such situations, you need a simple and clear explanation of the key requirements for compliance and step-by-step guidance on key actions to take. Ideally, this should be provided in plain English with actionable suggestions. Hence, the book “Be Ready for GDPR” is your solution.

This book authored by Punit Bhatia is designed to provide you with a step-by-step approach on how to structure a data protection plan to assure compliance with GDPR. For those who already have a plan, this book will help review it and assure that the focus is assigned onto the right priorities. This book will provide answers to the following questions:

•    How to set your privacy and protection program?
