The General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR) was approved and adopted by the EU Parliament in April 2016 with the goal to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches. What is the scope of the GDPR? How does it impact your organisation? This white paper guides you so your organization can meet the needs of GDPR.
The General Data Protection Regulation1 is a European Union regulation with the full title of ‘Regulation on the protection of natural persons with regard to the
processing of personal data and on the free movement
of such data, which repeals Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation)’.
It’s the first comprehensive overhaul and replacement of European data protection legislation in over twenty years and could be the most significant regulatory framework
to hit organizations since Sarbanes-Oxley in 2002. Its purpose is to replace the varying implementations across Europe of the earlier EU Data Protection Directive with a single harmonized EU regulation. The intended outcome is a standardized set of expectations about how an organization must manage and protect personally identifiable information on employees, clients and other applicable data subjects.

“We don’t have a BYOD programme.”
This statement, referencing mobile device usage in the workplace, is a refrain often heard in European organisations that are
tasked with securing the privacy of highly confidential data and personally identifiable information, and managing employee
authorisation and access to that data. However, businesses often believe that they aren’t actually subject to cyber-threats
from mobile devices because, simply, they don’t currently allow personal mobile devices to access their networks. Ultimately,
this posture puts data at risk because every company has a BYOD policy whether they like it or not.
The GDPR is set to have wide-ranging implications for the type of data which can be used in non-production environments. Organizations will need to understand exactly what data they have and who’s using it, and must be able to restrict its use to tasks for which consent has been given.
In this paper, you will find the results of a survey commissioned by CA Technologies to understand the readiness of organizations to meet the compliance needs of the GDPR. Given the GDPR is set to have wide-ranging implications for the type of data that can be used in non-production environments, CA Technologies wanted in particular to understand how companies are planning for the GDPR and what processes and technology is needed to help them.
The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most stringent and burdensome privacy mandate in the world. The penalty for major violations can be up to 20 million euros or 4% of your company's annual global revenue.
Under GDPR, we all have new obligations to improve the security and privacy of personal data at our organisations. With the new Amazon Web Services eBook, GDPR: The Basics, you’ll gain a fundamental understanding of this new EU regulation.
In this eBook, you will learn about:
• How to view GDPR as an opportunity, and how you can build on it

The General Data Protection Regulation, is a piece of legislation that was approved and put in to place by the European Parliament in April 2016. As European Law, it will fully take effect after a 2-year transition ending May 25th 2018.
GDPR, replaces the previous Data Protection Directive (DPD), adopted in 1995, and will in the UK, replace and strengthen the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). One of the initial differences between GDPR and DPD, is that GDPR is a regulation not a directive; as a regulation, no additional enabling legislation will have to be passed by governments of member states.

MuleSoft surveyed 802 IT decision makers (ITDMs) globally to assess how organizations of all sizes are executing on digital transformation initiatives, IT challenges and the role of APIs to meet business goals.
The survey results reveal challenges that are hindering IT’s ability to achieve digital transformation fast enough. Just 18% of ITDMs are very confident that they will succeed in meeting this year’s digital transformation goals. IT challenges are not only slowing down their ability to complete digital transformation goals this year, but they are also directly putting business revenue at risk. In fact, 66 percent of ITDMs said that their company’s revenue would be negatively impacted within six months. However, the survey found that IT teams are looking to APIs and reuse of existing applications, data and digital resources to speed up the pace of business.

Companies are in a race to set themselves apart from the competition in a meaningful way. Pre-Internet and pre-cloud, beating the competition meant out-advertising them, out-spending them, out-maneuvering them, or getting to a certain demographic before they did.
Today – it means using data to connect with the customer on a meaningful level. Connection breeds loyalty, which breeds recurring revenue. A huge marketing or advertising budget won’t help you much if you’re not able to connect with your customer IN THE MOMENT – to capitalize on what the customer is doing right now.

We live in the age of “multi”. Everything is becoming more complex, more “intelligent”, and more distributed. Hybrid cloud isn’t really the new frontier—some companies have been operating in a hybrid cloud environment for nearly a decade—the new frontier is learning HOW to take full advantage of hybrid cloud without creating data silos or busting the IT budget.
Enterprises are, of course, always looking for ways to make their computer systems faster, more highly available, more fault tolerant, and simpler to scale.
But in the age of “multi,” this is becoming harder and harder to do.

readiness are phased programme engagement points and
cognitive capabilities which can accelerate your journey.
This new, stronger regulation will aim to harmonise data
protection across all 28 EU Member States. In some cases, it
will merely strengthen or enhance specific rights which are
already in place under many local data privacy laws, whilst other
rights and obligations will be introduced for the first time.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) framework seeks to create a
harmonized data protection framework across the European Union, and aims
to give back EU citizens control of their personal data by imposing stricter
requirements for those hosting and processing this data, anywhere in the

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has arrived. Every company doing business with
European customers — regardless of location — must make considerable governance, people, process,
and technology changes to comply with the new rules. While companies have made progress, more work
remains. To succeed, they must tackle key challenges, including data identification, mapping, and access
management. Despite the work ahead, forward-looking businesses understand GDPR is an opportunity.
This is a transformation for a data-savvy world, with the potential to yield enhanced customer and
business benefits. Investment in solutions with data privacy, security, and compliance offerings that can
