GDPR Compliance Readiness Assessment (Interactive) — Quick Guide

You can say a lot of things about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), but one thing you definitely can’t say about it is that it’s simple. The GDPR is a tangled web of complex regulations that threatens to envelop businesses that fail to prepare to meet its demands. Preparing for the GDPR is neither easy nor straightforward; it’s no wonder that, as of May 2017, a mere 20% of U.K. businesses had begun preparing for the GDPR in their organisations with only a year left until the date of implementation.


It almost seems as if many GDPR-impacted businesses are suffering from the Procrastinator’s Paradox: perhaps the amount of work organisations must put in to prepare for GDPR compliance is so vast and daunting that said companies keep putting it off ’til later.


Unfortunately, this isn’t like college finals where three sleepless days of cramming can make up for your prolonged procrastination. GDPR compliance can’t be accomplished through a few weeks of last-minute prep. A tactical, strategic approach to GDPR preparation must be taken to ensure businesses are ready for implementation come May 2018.


Because complexity begets confusion, we decided to make the GDPR as approachable as possible. We’ve created an interactive GDPR Compliance Readiness Assessment to provide you with a clear understanding of where you fall in the preparation process, with clearly defined next steps to help you keep your compliance prep in motion.


Preparing for the GDPR may not be the most fun you’ll have at work, but our interactive GDPR assessment will hopefully make the process at least slightly more bearable.


Take the assessment and see how ready you are for GDPR compliance. This is the most fun you’ll have preparing for the GDPR (we promise), so forgo the dry blog posts and stiffly worded regulations for now and take Synthio’s GDPR Compliance Readiness Assessment instead.**
