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:

and protection program?
