IT Governance Publishing releases second edition of EU GDPR – An Implementation and Compliance Guide

IT Governance Publishing (ITGP), the world’s leading IT GRC publisher, is pleased to announce the release of the second edition of the essential EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – An Implementation and Compliance Guide

An in-depth guide to complying with the EU GDPR

This updated version gives further guidance and clarification on the new data protection law and sets out the obligations of data processors and controllers in clear terms.

Topics covered include:

  • The data protection officer (DPO) role;
  • Risk management and data protection impact assessments (DPIAs);
  • Data subjects’ rights, including consent and the withdrawal of consent;
  • International data transfers to third countries, including the EU-US Privacy Shield; and
  • How to adjust your data protection processes for GDPR compliance.

 

About the authors: The IT Governance Privacy Team has substantial experience in privacy, data protection, compliance and information security. This experience and the team’s understanding of the background and drivers for the GDPR are combined in the world’s first guide to implementing the Regulation.

The GDPR will supersede the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (DPD) and all EU member states’ national laws based on it – including the UK Data Protection Act 1998 – in May 2018.

All organisations in any part of the world that process the personal data of EU residents must comply with the Regulation. Failure to do so could cost them up to €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover in fines.

EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – An Implementation and Compliance Guide is available from IT Governance Publishing and all good booksellers in softcover, Adobe eBook, ePub and Kindle formats:
