If your organisation 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 programme engagement points and
cognitive capabilities which can accelerate your journey.
This new, stronger regulation will aim to harmonise 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.

With cybercriminals threatening nations globally, cybersecurity is taking a front seat in many regions. Most notably, the European Union (EU) has adopted regulations to combat the threats. Against the backdrop of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks, the EU has set forth rules and procedures for enhanced cybersecurity, along with penalties for noncompliance, in the form of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This new body of mandated policies and procedures aims to protect EU member personal information collected and/or stored by organizations. Read more in the GDPR business brief.
As of May 25, 2018, organizations around the world—not just

million EU residents, whether or not it has a physical presence
in the EU.

How are you balancing strong security and the customer experience? The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirement is an opportunity to properly balance privacy and the user experience. Those who embrace it will distinguish themselves as a trustworthy and respectful custodian of their users’ data. Personal data plays an increasingly important part in providing the kind of appealing experience that brings users back time and time again. But, there’s a balance to be struck. Strong security is the best tool available for navigating the dichotomy between an appealing user experience and the risk posed by data breach; it allows the collection and management of personal data in line with the user’s expectations, and without jeopardizing the trust that is so important between them and you.
As May 25th, 2018 approaches, many of the organisations that I speak to are choosing to modernise their HR systems to help with their compliance efforts. In particular, where organisations have a complicated mix of different HR systems and spreadsheets, with employee data spread across different databases managed by multiple security models, GDPR compliance will be more difficult. Contrast such a complicated mix of HR systems with Workday’s unified, single system approach to HR, with a single source of HR data and a single security model, and you can see why organisations are choosing to move to Workday as they work to both modernise their HR systems and move towards GDPR compliance.

The clock is ticking: A year from today, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect. With that in mind, now is a good time to talk about how Workday offers tools that help customers meet their GDPR obligations.
But first, here’s a brief refresher: The GDPR is an EU regulation meant to harmonize the patchwork of data protection laws in Europe. The GDPR repeals and replaces not just the current EU data protection directive, but also the Byzantine system of privacy legislation that each EU member state enacted under that directive.

Reasonable, common-sense security standards are becoming law in many regions of the world. In Europe, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), enacted in April 2016, will become fully applicable on May 25, 2018. GDPR will bring the European Union (EU) under one comprehensive and harmonised legal system for data protection and privacy. The monetary penalties and reputational damage of noncompliance with GDPR are substantial – the maximum fines are the greater of 20 million euros or 4% of the company’s worldwide revenue.
GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information.
While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.

"GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation has just been signed into law and enacts new rules and stiff penalties for any company who misuses or loses European Union (EU) citizens’ personal data. This sweeping legislation has expanded the definition of personal data and puts IT and testing departments on high alert to safeguard personal data, across development and testing environments. Test data management, the process of obtaining and distributing test data for development teams, takes on greater urgency as the GDPR deadline looms.
Solid test data management practices will be key to overcoming compliance roadblocks and avoiding huge fines associated with GDPR. Utilizing new ways in which test data can be generated, distributed and managed will be pivotal role to meeting this regulation.
