Don’t Get Caught in the GDPR Panic of 2018

Let’s face it, there is going to be panic in coming months as the deadline approaches for compliance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which sets broad new privacy guidelines for companies in the EU and those doing business with EU residents.

Like the Y2K crisis, the danger is real and disaster could strike without a big, cross-functional effort by organizations in advance. When GDPR takes effect on May 25, 2018, it comes with horizon-bending upgrades to consumer rights and stiff penalties for noncompliance.

As the leading platform for customer identity and access management (CIAM), Gigya has a series of e-books, blogs and webinars on GDPR regulations and compliance strategies when managing consumers’ personal data.

Our latest webinar, “T-Minus 365 Days to GDPR,” introduces our Privacy by Design program, which helps clients comply with GDPR and other data protection and privacy regulations that impact their management of customer data. The webinar is a powerhouse of information on how to mesh compliance with improved customer experience.

By starting to plan for GDPR now, Gigya clients have an opportunity to get in front of the problem and build an even better consumer experience, rather simply making changes forced on them because of a legal requirements.

In the webinar, presented by Jason Rose, senior vice president of marketing at Gigya, and Adrian Nash, vice president of GigyaWorks Global Services, you will learn:

  • How to evaluate where your company stands on GDPR compliance for customer data with our free GDPR Readiness Toolkit for CIAM.
  • Why implementing a CIAM solution using Privacy by Design principles can create trust with customers, give them control of their preferences and profile information, and help them understand how you intend to use their data. (That’s a major point because a recent Gigya survey found that two-thirds of respondents  don’t trust brands with their personal information.)
  • How our Global Services team developed the Privacy by Design program by drawing on best practices honed through hundreds of successful enterprise CIAM deployments.

The Privacy by Design program includes a one-day workshop to identify customer identity compliance gaps and design a customized blueprint for a best-fit implementation of Gigya’s platform..

With GDPR fines reaching €20 million or 4 percent of annual revenue for noncompliance, companies can’t afford to be caught unprepared. Start with our GDPR knowledge base and begin planning your path to a compliant customer identity strategy and solution today.
