The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become law across the EU on May 25th, 2018. GDPR applies to the protection of all personal data belonging to any EU citizen held by an Organisation. The fines for non-compliance start at 2% of global turnover and can be as high as 4% of global turnover or €20 Million.

Despite it being just over a year until GDPR is enforced, many Organisations are still unclear on GDPR, what it covers, who it applies to and where to start to ensure they are compliant.

The Dublin DataSec 2017 conference, which takes place in the RDS on May 3rd, will provide expert speakers, information, and insight to help businesses comply with GDPR and get the most out of the legislation.

Ground Labs VP of Global Sales John Cassidy, will be part of a panel discussing GDPR at the event. The Ground Labs team will be there on the day to give one-to-one GDPR consultations focusing on the first step in GDPR preparation, Data Discovery, and Accountability.

The first step in preparing for GDPR is finding the personal data held within your Organisation. Ground Labs leading Data Discovery tool Enterprise Recon is the complete solution for the identification, remediation, and monitoring of personal data across an entire network.

Hope to see you at Dublin Datasec 2017!
