NEW YORK - May 16, 2018 - PRLog -- According to the Information Security Forum (ISF), the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will have an international reach, affecting any organization that handles the personal data of European Union (EU) residents, regardless of where it is processed.The GDPR adds another layer of complexity, not to mention potential cost and associated resources, to the issue of critical information asset management that so many organizations are struggling to come to terms with.

While every organization should judge the risks and rewards of its own data protection investments, the GDPR offers a unique opportunity to translate necessary compliance actions into tangible business benefit. Leading organizations are structuring GDPR compliance programs to exploit these opportunities, mindful of their increased responsibilities to handle personal information appropriately and responsibly. Although the GDPR is upon us, it is not too late to join them – May sees the start of the journey to ongoing protection of personal information, something that will be with us for some time to come.

During this webcast, Alex Jordan, Senior Analyst of the ISF, will discuss the ISF's phased approach to GDPR implementation and specific ways to determine the criticality of data and how to protect it appropriately. Jordan will also address the urgent actions that a business can take to get GDPR compliance started, highlight common myths surrounding the GDPR, and provide guidance on organizations can do to cut through the noise.
