The recent Veritas report into GDPR readiness shows a number of startling statistics. For example, 31% of respondents claim to conform, however, on inspection only 2% actually did.

GDPR is a major piece of legislation, re-writing the rules on how European citizens' data is protected, irrespective of where it is located.  With fines of up to 4% of global annual turnover or €20 million, whichever is greater, now is not the time to be complacent.

Understanding where personal data resides on your network and how it is used is key to unlocking GDPR compliance - as this helps organisations take adequate security measures, as well as provides knowledge on specific "what and where" data details, should a breach occur.  With the clock ticking down, now is the time to act and get prepared.
