Can you believe that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect in only three months? Customers have let us know that messages with the four-percent-fine/scare-tactic approach aren’t welcome. Instead, they’re asking us to offer a solution, multi-year plan, or specific use cases to help them understand the importance of complying with GDPR requirements.
Partners are already helping organizations leverage the GDPR as a competitive differentiator. They recognize that customers need to trust their data will be properly managed-or they’ll likely take their business elsewhere.
