Is GDPR the next Y2K?

Welcome to our second post exploring the survey we conducted with several large enterprises on their plans related to compliance with the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We've been hearing that some people believe the hype around GDPR to be reminiscent what happened with Y2K. Is GDPR like Y2K in that organizations will be so prepared that it is a non-event? We don't think so. Unlike Y2K, this isn't a binary problem with date handling. It is much more complex and less prescriptive in terms of where the problems and risks lie. Last time, we explored some of the attitudes coloring organizational approaches to compliance. This week, we’ll be taking a look at some of the specific mandates and what organizations are doing to prepare.
