KPMG provide consulting services on compliance with GDPR requirements.

Why is it important?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), without doubt, has introduced the most dramatic change to data privacy and governance in recent years. GDPR, which came into force on 25 May 2018, requires all companies with EU personal data subjects, to transform their data collection, processing, storage, deletion and transfer practices to comply with the new regulation. The key issue for business is to assess the effect of GDPR on their operations, reveal the gaps and develop control measures to mitigate or eliminate them. GDPR compliance is a challenge for every business as it combines technology, processes and governance, under one compliance framework.
