Below is a list of GDPR resources to get started researching how the regulation will impact your organization. I’ll warn you now, there are a lot of details, and a lot of it is vague. The biggest takeaway you should remember is “Data privacy by design.” Data privacy should no longer be a luxury or generous offer, it should be baked into the core business processes of any firm. If it isn’t, you could be facing serious fines and data flow restrictions.
This list is just the beginning and doesn’t cover all the details you should consider. If you have more that have been useful to you, please add them in the comments below. If you have any questions, we’re happy to help you talk through them, but this post or anything else we say about the GDPR does not constitute legal advice. You need to do your own research to determine how the GDPR will impact your firm and your applications.
