Facebook's Data Scandal and GDPR - How It Impacts You
Recorded April 18, 2018 at 1:00 PM EST
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation [EU] 2016/679) has many organizations “gnashing their teeth” trying to become compliant. And if you think this Facebook’s privacy debacle doesn’t have anything to do you, think again: Unlike PCI, whose standards affect their own customers and thus they were very lenient for the first 10 years, the European Union is looking out only for their citizens… meaning the fines are huge and there is no incentive to play nice – especially for foreign-based (read: US) organizations.
Facebook’s actions only make things worse for ‘average’ companies

Find out what you need to do now!
It’s estimated that only 20% of companies will make the date. While this may seem comforting, there’s a difference between being close to compliant and being found negligent.
