The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on May 25, 2018, creating challenges—and opportunities—for every organization doing business in the European Union. GDPR may apply to Canadian businesses, since a business doesn’t need to have a physical presence in the European Union to be subject to GDPR.
Canada has its own privacy legislation, so the good thing is you’re likely not starting from scratch. But GDPR privacy requirements are more onerous than the existing Canadian privacy legal regime—GDPR represents a step change in the way businesses need to handle privacy.
Organizations that take the opportunity to rethink risk and compliance as they prepare for GDPR will have a unique opportunity to drive distinctive strategy, capabilities and performance.
