In May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation laws take effect. Are you ready? Richard chats with Seb Matthews about what IT Pros can do to get ready for the GDPR. The regulations are broad, covering personally identifiable information, data breaches, the right to be forgotten and more. Whether you're an EU company or just do business with EU residents, the GDPR can affect you. Seb talks about the six Ps to compliance: Placement, Process, People, Products, Privacy and Protection. And he also digs into how Microsoft can help with a number of great tools as part of Azure, Office 365 and more. Yet another reason to get to the cloud!
