Be Compliant, Stay Compliant: How Policies, Procedures, Protocol, and People Help You Tackle the GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new privacy regulation in Europe that protects the personal data for any individual based in the European Union (EU), regardless of citizenship or where the data is held. It applies to any organizations located inside or outside the EU if they offer goods or services to — or monitor the behavior of — EU data subjects. The GDPR will be enforced in May 2018 and outlines strict fines for companies found to be out of compliance. Now is the time for SAP customers to establish a process for adhering to the necessary requirements. To be compliant — and stay compliant — with the GDPR, companies need to be mindful of four critical areas: policies, procedures, protocol, and people.
