In April 2016, the EU passed the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effective may 25, 2018, to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU).

Are you prepared?

Will everything be different under the new data protection law? No. The basic principles remain: The usage of personal data is not allowed unless explicitly permitted by a specific law or if the data subject has given consent for the processing of personal data. The principles of transparency, purpose limitation and data minimization remain basic tenets of the new regulation. However, the GDPR does mandate stronger rights for data subjects, more obligations for data processors, higher fines for infringement and certifications as proof of compliance.

Software AG equips you with the means to quickly set up the knowledge base and process framework you need for achieving compliance by the 2018 deadline by offering everything in one solution: business process analysis, enterprise architecture management, IT portfolio management and planning, and GRC practices.
