FAQ: Understanding the General Data Protection Regulation


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has arrived — and with it, a wealth of questions, concerns and challenges for organizations doing business with the European Union or the European Economic Area (EEA).


Without question, the GDPR disrupts security and privacy procedures by mandating that organizations focus on protecting the individual as opposed to controlling organizational processes.

Organizations have many questions, and in response, we are pleased to share our GDPR Readiness FAQ, created in partnership with Robert Half and the multinational law firm Baker McKenzie to help organizations understand, prepare and operate under the GDPR.

You can also listen to our experts discuss GDPR, share how it impacts various types of organizations and functional areas, and identify common GDPR gaps and technical components.
