Preparing for the implementation of the GDPR is a significant undertaking. The proper frame of mind to do so is to think of implementing the GDPR as a marathon rather than a sprint. A successful implementation of the GDPR will mean that the organization has embraced its “Privacy by Design and Default” philosophy and understands that May 25, 2018 is just a date, not a deadline.
While there are many steps to achieve a successful implementation, here are ten that you can take to get a real Head Start on the process.
