THIS IS NOT A WHITEPAPER!

This is a BLUEPRINT designed for IT and business professionals that need practical best-practice research, tools, and templates to quickly get to action to better understand and address GDPR compliance and regulatory requirements. Info-Tech delivers practical research that delivers measurable results.

GDPR is here to stay! Many organizations struggle with the notion of a global data privacy regulation. Some question the enforceability of such a wide set of regulatory criteria, while many are concerned about their potential exposure and unsure of where to start.

It is important to understand the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is first of many enhancements to worldwide data privacy standards. Other jurisdictions, such as the US (various states), Canada, and Australia are following GDPR with updates to their privacy regulations.

With this unstoppable freight train of inevitable and improved data privacy baselines, the GDPR should be seen as a framework for an organization's data privacy efforts. Organizations should embrace GDPR's risk-based and pragmatic approach to data privacy.

This research will help you:

  • 1. Understand the regulation's applicability and the risks imposed by GDPR.
  • 2. Develop a defensible position for your internal and external stakeholders.
  • 3. Lay the foundation for future data privacy regulations and directives.

Follow Info-Tech's methodology to move towards GDPR compliance. The Blueprints includes a step-by-step approach to fast-track your GDPR compliance efforts. The Blueprint includes best-practice research and Excel-based tools and Word templates that your organization can use for your own purposes:
