Kanguru: Why Non-EU Organizations Can’t Afford To Ignore GDPR
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Millis, MA, USA – May 31, 2017 – One of the biggest changes in data security regulations is coming out of the European Union that will have a significant impact on organizations around the world. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is intended to give EU citizens better control over their personal information gathered by organizations, and though its grasp is primarily focused on business conducted within the EU, the effects will have far-reaching implications across the globe. Any organization that conducts business with an EU organization pertaining to the collection and processing of personal data of any EU citizen will be influenced by this new regulation, including online and cloud services. The impact of GDPR on organizations around the world cannot be overstated.
Kanguru removes the complication factor associated with compliance, making it easy for today’s organizations to securely manage data and comply with regulations. Kanguru is providing free information for anyone interested in learning more about GDPR.
Why Nations Outside of the EU Should Also Comply With GDPR
With today's digital climate making it easier than ever for information to cross continents within seconds, EU parliament approved and adopted this new regulation on April 24, 2016 to protect the personal data of its citizens, and it imposes severe consequences for EU organizations that do not comply. Also written into the language of GDPR are certain rights for EU citizens to seek damages if an organization is found responsible for the mishandling, unauthorized collecting, or being the cause of a breach of their personal data regardless of their location. It adds specific new responsibilities that organizations must now follow in order to ensure that personal data remains inextricably secure even if business necessitates it to transfer from location to location.
As a result, EU organizations could actually begin refusing to do business with outside firms if they feel there might be even the slightest risk, especially if companies are unaware of GDPR, or unwilling to demonstrate compliance. This is why it would be sensible for organizations everywhere to prepare for this new regulation. They simply can’t afford to ignore GDPR.
