General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The existing EU data protection regime has not been changed since 1995. During the last 20 years, there have been significant advances in information technology, and fundamental changes to the ways in which individuals and organisations communicate and share information. In addition cybercrime and hackers have had a field day with IP thefts, extortion and releasing confidential personal information. Combined with such developments, companies have now to get their IT Security act together and adopt a somewhat different approach to implementing the new mandates of the EU Data Protection Directive. http://www.copenhagencompliance.com/gdpr/index.html
Create a joint cyber and IT Security platform
The GDPR directive will create compliance difficulties for many businesses. In recognition of such challenges, management must consider the impact of the GDPR on their businesses and how a structured approach can even help understand business, create growth through the structured data intelligence and perhaps even cut some of the IT costs by e.g. identifying duplication, integrating IT processes and creating a joint cyber and IT Security platform.
The GDPR security and data protection policies need entirely new roles and responsibilities to address the data and safety information system within the organisation and to proactively monitor their networks and identify any potential security threat in real-time.

Hire a dedicated Data Protection Officer
Companies are obliged to respond in the event of a data breach within 72 hours and to inform the oversight authorities’ and the users of data of a violation without any delay. The regulation further requires organisations with 250 employees or more to have a Data Protection Officer, responsible for ensuring compliance.
Once you have the above prerequisites in place, then it is possible to start with the nitty gritty of the GDPR directive.
