    Tools and techniques to make GDPR compliance work across your organisation

    Cut the ”legal speak” and find a language, and tools/techniques which works across your organization on compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR will replace existing EU data protection laws on 25th May 2018 in Sweden and every EU member state. and heavy fines await companies that do not comply. 

    It all seems so complicated, but in fact if you dig deep enough you will find hidden simplicity. Data privacy rules, at least the lowest common denominator in privacy have been around since 1980. There are quite simply 8 privacy principles. Privacy laws globally are all founded on these 8 principles, including the GDPR. By taking the lowest common denominator in privacy you can build a global privacy program using the GDPR as your privacy standard.
