SyncDog releases statements on GDPR via whitepaper explaining how the standard’s release will affect global data security and compliance, with five recommendations for how to prepare.
Reston, VA, June 29, 2017 – SyncDog, Inc., the leading ISV for mobile application containerization, today announced the issuance of its statements on the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, accompanied by guidelines for compliance with the standard going into effect May 25, 2018. In sharp contrast with the relaxed or absent data security standards enforcement over the last few decades, GDPR’s fines for non-compliance will be unprecedented and its scope global. Penalties will reach up to four percent of global annual revenue, capped at €20 million, with a lower-level level fine of two percent global annual revenue or €10 million, whichever is higher.
In light of GDPR’s austerity, SyncDog has spent considerable time researching the standard and today released its paper titled “GDPR will bring the Teeth that have been Missing in Data Security Auditing and Compliance” for organizations seeking to prepare their security and compliance strategies accordingly. The paper explains why GDPR will change the playing field next year for global data security, explores what the standard means for endpoint data management, and offers five tips to help covered organizations maintain compliance.
“GDPR looms closer every day, and not much is being said about the global consequences for non-compliance,” said Jonas Gyllensvaan, SyncDog president and CEO. “Like most regulations, the complexity of GDPR coupled with the complexity of enterprise IT infrastructures is overwhelming. CxOs who may be scrambling for information on how to remain compliant will find many helpful answers and insights in this whitepaper.”
