MediaPro has announced the launch of its General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Privacy Awareness Solution, designed to help companies comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation, one of the most significant data privacy regulatory updates in recent years.
The European Parliament and Council of the European Union in December 2015 approved a final draft of the EU GDPR, backed by the European Parliament’s Civil Liberties, Justice & Home Affairs Committee. The EU's GDPR, which will go into effect in May 2018, affects any company that handles the personal data of EU citizens. Violation of key GDPR provisions could result in fines of up to 4% of a company's global annual turnover.
MediaPro offers four program levels, aligned with industry standards like the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, serving companies of all sizes and maturity levels. The GDPR Privacy Awareness Solution makes it easy for organizations and companies to deploy a program to analyze risks, build a plan for improvement, and offer training and reinforcement unique to each company's risks and needs, all of which are critical to complying with the GDPR.
