This Week’s Big News: GDPR Is (Still) Coming – and So Is the Ivanti Podcast!
At the risk of repeating ourselves, the United Kingdom (UK)’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming in May 2018, and your enterprise needs to be ready, even if based elsewhere. The GDPR seeks to protect the personally identifiable information (PII) of every European Union (EU) citizen, wherever they may be. So if you do business with EU citizens, the GDPR applies to you – and the fines and penalties for non-compliance.
This week, we’ve got some more blog posts intended to encourage and support your efforts to achieve GDPR compliance, and to highlights the business benefits of doing so. And we’ve also got a preview of our new podcast. We’ve even got an attempt to peer into the future of technology, and a salute to an Ivanti customer nominated for a really cool industry award. Check’em out!
