Without a doubt, preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is having a significant impact on UK organisations in terms of cost and effort.
At Experian, we believe the GDPR presents a positive opportunity to transform the way you organise and process the personal data you hold; increasing the value you get from it and reinforcing customer-centric business practices that are essential in our data-driven age.
Based on a combination of our experience, services and software we can provide a solid foundation to launch your readiness for the GDPR.
To help you get started, we have prepared 4 solution packages and a series of resources that will help prepare and educate you on the different aspects of the new data protection regulations, how others are preparing and, how we can support you.
"Only 24 percent of companies rate their level of readiness to comply with the GDPR as high. 59 percent say they do not understand what the company needs to do to comply with the GDPR."
