It may only be four letters, but the European Union’s newly implemented General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) implements a huge range of changes in how companies need to handle customer data and other data besides. The GDPR replaces a more than 20-year-old directive on how companies should protect and handle the data of European residents, from initial filing through deletion. Most multinational companies, and of course EU-based companies should already be aware of requirements, but given increasing demands for global and always-on applications how will they achieve it?.

While some US companies may already have strong technology, operations and information practices in place, the reality for most US companies is that they have a lot of work to do to become compliant with the new regulations. Join Chris Mann, Senior EMEA Counsel, and Iain Finlayson, Solutions Engineer from DataStax to learn how the new regulations will impact US companies and how a hybrid cloud database can help you get and stay compliant with GDPR.
