IT Governance Publishing releases new EU edition of its bestselling book, EU GDPR: A Pocket Guide


IT Governance Publishing (ITGP), the world’s leading IT GRC publisher, is pleased to announce the release of EU GDPR: A Pocket Guide by Alan Calder
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduces a number of new obligations for organisations that process EU residents’ personal data, and mandates tough fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million – whichever is higher – for all non-compliant organisations that suffer a data breach.
With less than a year and a half until the Regulation comes into effect in May 2018, organisations around the world are under increasing pressure to introduce the necessary changes to their data protection regimes.
