Well, it is official. The GDPR is here.

A long time in the making, the GDPR represents the single biggest shift in Information Management in living memory and will change the way businesses gather, store, use and manage data forever.

With its focus on personal information relating to individuals residing in the EU, over 500 million of us are now being described as ‘data subjects’ and organisations across the globe are spending millions on ensuring that they comply with this controversial legislation.

Over the last year, our team has been working with a number of customers assisting them on their compliance journey leading up to today and if there is one thing we have learnt it is that many organisations really have had a free ride with regards to how they use personal information.

We will be reporting back over the next few months as the dust settles – we would love to hear from you if you have an interesting story relating to your GDPR journey.
