IBM Pathways for GDPR readiness
January 11, 2018
If your organization carries out business in the European Union, then you may be aware that your life is about to become a lot more complicated starting in May 2018. That’s when the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect. IBM is positioned to help you develop strategies to address the challenges of the GDPR. Our Pathways for GDPR readiness are phased program engagement points and cognitive capabilities which can accelerate your journey.
This new, stronger regulation will aim to harmonize data protection across all 28 EU Member States. In some cases, it will merely strengthen or enhance specific rights which are already in place under many local data privacy laws, whilst other rights and obligations will be introduced for the first time. Simply put, GDPR compliance will soon be considered a requirement to conduct business in Europe.
IBM views the GDPR as a competitive business opportunity, as it may inspire enterprises to adopt unified information governance as part of their core strategy. Unified governance can provide the foundation for success in the digital age.
