Many organisations will be undoubtedly nervous and put off about the regulation and the impact it will have on the business. This will be coupled with some scare mongering your organisation will be responsible for ensuring compliance with the new regulation in terms of handling and protecting personal data. The regulation itself is now much more involved than the act it replaces and it could lead to substantial penalties for non-compliance.

Organisations will become liable for any damage resulting from data breaches. Whilst for many this could be a large change programme, for many more, particularly small to mid-size businesses, it could be a new set of activities which need to be understood, managed and complied with.

Purple provides expertise in GDPR and has developed a GDPR readiness assessment supported by a portfolio of services to help organisations ensure they are compliant through practical but effective responses to the key tenets of the new regulation.  Purple’s position on GDPR is that every organisation should embrace this as a positive move, rather than looking at the investment required to be compliant, use this as a good PR exercise to demonstrate to your customers and staff that you take their data privacy seriously.
