GDPR Assessment Grant
Based on the alarming non-compliance instances, Campus Consortium strives to safeguard individual privacy rights through its first ever General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Assessment Grant.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new European Union (EU) privacy law that came into effect on May 25, 2018. It is designed to give individuals control over their personal data and is an important effort for protecting individual rights and freedoms. The GDPR applies to any organization based in the EU and organizations—wherever they are located—that are selling goods and services in the EU or processing personal data of individuals in the EU.
Organizations that comply with GDPR regulations smoothly and readily will strengthen their relationships with customers by protecting the security and privacy of their data and providing transparency into policies and principles.
Additionally, the robust data management capabilities required to achieve compliance can enable businesses to better engage with customers, empower employees, and optimize the creation and delivery of products and services.
