12 Must-Read GDPR Resources

GDPR ResourcesToday’s the day. In exactly one year, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect. So now, the countdown is REALLY on. If you do business with EU citizens – if you deal with their data in any way – then you need a plan for how you’re going to comply. And this isn’t one of those “wait and see what happens” kind of regulations. The ICO made it very clear that there will be no grace period. Translation: every organization that falls under the GDPR must be compliant one year from today. It’s a bit scary, right?

Well have no fear, because we’ve rounded up several GDPR resources to help you get up-to-speed about what you need to know – and do – to be compliant with the GDPR one year from today.
