1. Read GDPR Regulations
While there are sections which are difficult to decipher and feature more legal language, every person in a position to be affected by GDPR should attempt to read and understand this landmark legislation.
2. Have a closer look at compliance.
Businesses all over the world are affected by GDPR, not just those in the European Union. If you, or those in your organization, still lack understanding about the needed steps to reach compliance — reach out to those who are compliant. Many businesses will likely share the steps taken to reach compliance.
3. Pay Close Attention to Your Website
Cookies, opt-ins, data storage and more are things that can be easily setup on a website. Their compliance with GDPR is another matter entirely. While many tools used to collect and store contact data have allowed for compliance, it’s up to you to make sure you’re compliant.
4. Pay Closer Attention to Your Data
All data in your organization must comply with GDPR if you have a presence (either digitally or physically) in the E.U. Properly map out how data enters, is stored and/or transferred and deleted. Knowing every route personal information can take is vital to preventing breaches and ensuring proper reporting in the event of data loss.
