Enterprise Architecture is a key to GDPR compliance

May 23
Helsinki, Finland

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires organizations to be alert when it comes to handling personal data. When it is implemented in May 2018, companies and institutions will be obliged to comply, and demonstrate how personal data is processed. Organizations who fail to comply may face a hefty fine of 4% of their annual corporate revenue, or 20 million EUR. Not to mention the reputational damage, as well as disruption to business continuity. 

Ensuring compliance to the GDPR is an ongoing process, and all information must be kept up to date.

As an enterprise architect, you can play a pivotal role in ensuring compliance. By leveraging architecture models for security and privacy analyses, you can provide cross-cutting analyses on the use and protection of data across the enterprise, its processes, people and IT systems. Help your organization improve its cyber resilience, ensure regulatory compliance, and reduce operational, reputational, and financial risks.
