Getting Ready for GDPR? OroCRM’s Guide Will Help

March 20, 2018 | Oro Team

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is the privacy protection law adopted by the European Union (EU) Parliament and Council to protect the personal data of EU citizens. The GDPR goes into effect on May 25, 2018, and noncompliance can be costly. Any compliance breach may cost an organization at least €20 million or in some cases 4% of its global turnover. So, if you have at least one EU customer and handle their personal data, it’s imperative that you verify that you’re GDPR compliant.

Complying with GDPR requires companies to revise their inner processes and technical infrastructure, including business applications that manage customer information such as CRM software.
