GDPR went into place on May 25, 2018, for all organizations—EU and non-EU—that offer services to EU residents, as well as anyone who controls or processes data within the EU. The State of California is following suit with its CCPA targeted to be enforced in 2020. New York State is proposing its own privacy regulation with the NYPA.

GDPR, CCPA, and NYPA all impact oversight, technology, processes, and people. It’s incumbent upon businesses to build a data management and governance strategy that’s flexible enough to meet the needs of current and future regulations.

While each regulation has its unique characteristics, there are many common challenges that organizations must address, such as the right to personal data protection, where personal data is handled with industry-standard data security controls and best practices, including data protection by design and cross-border data transfer prevention; the right to data portability, so that individuals can choose to take their data elsewhere; the right to be forgotten and to erasure, so that individuals can request deletion; and the right to notification of personal data breach, so that any data breach is communicated to both authorities and users.

Mark Donsky introduces an approach called holistic privacy readiness that will help organizations establish best practices for meeting current and emerging privacy regulation.
