The Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on May 25, 2018.
This page lists the resources that QGate have created or seen that will help your business understand and prepare for the GDPR deadline.
It is not all bad news - GDPR can bring you opportunity too - it is a time to evaluate customer data management and a great exercise to build trust, loyalty and stronger customer relationships.
Prepare your organisation for the new regulation
GDPR changes the way we collect, manage and use personal data, regardless of the technology we do that with. Whether it is a market leader CRM system, a trendy cloud based app... or that 1992 backup tape, if it holds personal data, it must be part of your GDPR project.
