** NEW RESEARCH ** GDPR: Opportunities and Recommendations for UK SITS Suppliers

GDPR: Opportunities and RecommendationsCompliance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires some fundamental changes in the way that UK software and services (SITS) suppliers obtain consent to store and process citizens’ data and report data breaches to relevant supervising authorities.

Ensuring compliance ahead of the May 25th deadline can be complex, time consuming and expensive. But the new rules are not just an administrative burden designed to make life difficult for all concerned – the GDPR also offers significant benefits to any organisation engaged in the large scale processing of people’s data, especially where business operations span multiple EU countries.

And because the regulation applies to pretty much everyone (regardless of Brexit), the GDPR also presents a wealth of opportunities to SITS suppliers able to help their public and private sector customers meet its requirements whilst simultaneously beefing up data protection frameworks and cyber security defences.

Our latest report - ‘GDPR: Opportunities and Recommendations for UK SITS Suppliers’ - sets out where TechMarketView thinks those opportunities lie, summarises the primary areas of attention for establishing GDPR compliance amongst SITS suppliers themselves, and offers recommendations on the best way to proceed.
