The European Union released the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to unify the disparate data protection laws practiced by their member states, and to hand out severe penalties for the misuse of data by anyone doing business with its citizens. This move reflects the growing significance of data in the world today, and the possibilities for financial and moral infringements that the increase and velocity of data imply.

When GDPR comes into effect in May 2018, any breach of the rules could mean a maximum fine of either €10 million or two percent of an organization's global turnover, whichever is greater. This paper summarizes how WhereScape data automation software can help your organization deliver key requirements of GDPR, and avoid such catastrophic fines.
