That’s how long marketers have to prepare for the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which takes effect on May 25, 2018.
With only a year to go, the time for talk is over. The time for action has arrived.
That’s why Gigya is today announcing our Privacy by Design Program, a structured process where the GigyaWorks Global Services team delivers customized assessment, evaluation and implementation support for changes that help brands respond to GDPR’s radical revision of consumer data privacy and protection laws. Details are here.
In parallel with the Privacy by Design Program, we’re also announcing the Gigya GDPR Readiness Toolkit, available for download now. The toolkit includes a customer identity management GDPR technical self-assessment, a comprehensive guide explaining how Gigya’s Customer Identity Management platform can help clients prepare to address various GDPR requirements; a GDPR compliance matrix listing features of the Gigya platform mapped to GDPR requirements; a data sheet on the Gigya Privacy by Design Program; and results from Gigya’s 2017 State of Consumer Privacy and Trust survey.
Finally, I invite you to join me and Adrian Nash, Gigya’s vice president of global services, for a GDPR webinar at 11 am Eastern (16:00 GMT) this Thursday, May 25. We’ll explore how organizations can assess their GDPR readiness around customer identity and how to incorporate privacy by design principles in managing customer data.
