General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, is a new regulation passed by the European Union that is being enforced as of May 25th, 2018. Financial penalties for failure to comply with the strict guidelines for data protection are extreme. A recent Gartner report states that by the end of 2018 more than 50% of the companies impacted by GDPR will not be in compliance with the requirements. These companies are taking chances with your data placing you and your customer's privacy at risk, and could be putting your company in jeopardy of receiving significant fines for each occurrence of non-compliance.
In addition to the financial penalties, companies identified as being non-compliant are publicly cited introducing the risk for long-term irreparable reputational damage. A noteworthy example is the data breach of TalkTalk; the European Commissioner's Office issued a $532,158 fine, even more damaging was the fact that TalkTalk lost over 100,000 customers. Think about it, how much would a non-compliant platform cost you?
