The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new set of mandates meant to protect EU citizen data held or processed by companies doing business in Europe. Any company that does business in the EU is required to comply with the new data protection requirements by May of 2018 or face strict penalties resulting in fines up to 4% of the company’s annual revenue. Our experts will give a brief overview of the GDPR requirements and review best practices to achieve compliance for hybrid cloud deployments.

By attending this webinar you will learn how to mitigate the most serious GDPR requirements:

* Any organization that holds EU citizens’ personal data, irrespective of where it is headquartered or operates, must comply or face severe penalties.

* Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

* EU citizens must be notified of a breach within 72 hours of the occurrence.

* Fines to organizations are set at €20M or 4% of annuals revenues, whichever is greater.

* Fines can be levied starting May 25, 2018, so companies must get compliant ahead of that date.

Be sure to include your questions during registration so our presenters can address your concerns during the webcast. CPE credit is available.
