GDPR: where’s the starting point?

By | Wednesday February 15th, 2017

One of the most frequent question asked to me is “where do we start to adapt, how / what should we do with GDPR ??” Question not too much specific, but emphasizing that companies need to understand what the new “GDPR” is and how to comply with it, so as not to incur in its sanctions.

So I decided to make a “small gift” to all people involved in the issues above, who shall anyway comply with in GDPR their company … point out a tool which I find helpful, the link to ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) about: “Preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 12 steps to take now”

I will not add anything but don’t undervalue the first steps because often are the real reasons why companies do not adapt in time and remember that each organization has its own story, and these are only general guidelines

So: enjoy your reading and good work to everybody!
