_risks and opportunities of the GDPR

Is your organisation ready?


There is a lot of noise in market about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). And rightly so. The GDPR represents a new global high-water mark for data protection and privacy regulation, imposing new and complex privacy and cybersecurity rules on thousands of organisations around the world. The new laws, in place from 25 May 2018, expose organisations to significant risk and heavy fines – if found to be non-compliant.

Oakton, in partnership with Microsoft, provides an end-to-end assessment of your organisation’s readiness to meet GDPR requirements.*

We will look at your overall privacy and security governance controls, and provide reputable recommendations on not just how to uplift any weak areas in terms of GDPR readiness but also the broader data management and application support capabilities around your organisation’s privacy and regulatory needs. We will also conduct a detailed, script-driven, technical review of your database environment to check its current overall health and identify any issues that constrain adoption of the measures as a recommendation of what might be required to become GDPR compliance ready.*

Whether your business is affected by GDPR or not, compliance with its rigorous rules will give you a distinct competitive advantage.
