During the IAPP Europe Data Protection Congress 2016, AvePoint and the Centre for Information Policy Leadership released the first-ever global benchmark report for the General Data Protection Regulation, PRWeb reports. The report compiled responses from 223 multinational organizations on their level of preparedness for the implementation of the GDPR. The study also covers nine key concerns surrounding compliance with the GDPR, including the impact of the legislation and data transfers outside the EU. “The GDPR signals the start of a new generation of data privacy laws and practice in Europe and beyond,” said CIPL President Bojana Bellamy, CIPP/E. “The new law will affect the risk profile of organizations, impact their management, use and sharing of data, as well as their IT systems and infrastructure. But GDPR also represents an opportunity for organizations to consider data privacy compliance more strategically and holistically, as it becomes key to their data strategy and the digital transformation of their business.”
