Smartly Selected Infrastructure Paves a Pathway to GDPR Compliance

Preparing for the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires action now. Waiting
until 25 May 2018 when the regulation takes effect increases the risk of enforcement action, including maximum
fines of €20 million or 4% of global annual turnover (whichever is higher).

Waiting to take action is also a missed opportunity in at least two counts:

  • Getting a jump on differentiating your company in the eyes of consumers as a trusted practitioner of
    data privacy
  • Establishing new, and strengthening existing, business-to-business relationships when either or both
    parties are bound by GDPR
    GDPR should also be a catalyst to take critical and potentially overdue steps:
  • Compiling a complete inventory of personal data as defined by GDPR, as well as other types of sensitive
    data stored or processed by your company
  • Assessing the cost efficiency and protection efficacy of your company’s approach to storing and using
    personal and sensitive data
  • Improving data protection cost efficiency and efficacy

Taking these steps will not only support GDPR compliance and reduce the risk of penalties and data breaches but
also elevate your company’s ability to thrive in a fast-paced, highly competitive digital age, and defend against
advanced cybersecurity threats.

This white paper will describe how the right infrastructure foundation can assist GDPR compliance, while
contributing to your company’s stature in the digital age, as well as offer a checklist to ensure that new IT
infrastructure purchases effectively support GDPR compliance.
