HELPING YOU IMPLEMENT THE DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS
The European Union (EU) made an effect across the globe with passage of the GDPR in May 2016. When it goes into effect on May 25, 2018, all companies – including international firms – doing business with individuals located in EU member nation territory must conform with the law’s extensive provisions.
Failure to act swiftly to prepare for the regulation could have severe consequences including the following:
- your organization’s bottom line,
- customer relationships and
- brand image.
GDPR Compliance Audit
We will work with you to capture and document your compliance position using our methodology and our auditing methods.
