Orrick's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Readiness Assessment Tool helps you understand the GDPR and identifies (at a high level) your organization's current state of GDPR compliance. The GDPR Tool segments the GDPR into workable themes and takes you through a series of questions relating to each theme.
The GDPR went into effect in May 2018, and enforcement is on the rise. Along with brand and reputational damage, the risk of GDPR noncompliance carries severe financial sanctions of up to 4% of an organizations' annual global revenue or €20 million, whichever is higher. Many European data protection authorities have already imposed heavy fines on companies, and the market is also demanding compliance with an emphasis on the European Union (EU) provisions.
