With the May deadline fast approaching, organisations are still struggling with their GDPR readiness. The key to overcoming the initial hurdles of GDPR is for forward-thinking companies to build a defensible position. This will allow the organisation to quickly, easily, and definitively prove to regulators that the most material compliance steps have been taken and that a concrete plan is in place to combat what is remaining. While this strategy may not completely remove the risk of all fines and have every aspect of the regulation covered; it will help organisations build credibility with regulators and establish a solid foundation to build upon as more consensus develops in the subsequent years.
