When the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is introduced this year, the bar for data privacy protection in the UK will be raised.

For thousands of businesses GDPR highlights daunting issues of compliance. Organisations that fail to comply with the regulation will face massive fines: up to £17 million or four percent of global revenue, whichever is higher.

The May 25, 2018, deadline for GDPR compliance is drawing closer but many businesses, including some Microsoft Partners and customers, are unsure where to begin. Businesses cannot afford to waste time in GDPR preparation.

GDPR Assessment: Are you ready for the GDPR?

Microsoft released a comprehensive online GDPR assessment. The multiple-choice assessment is geared towards helping organisations review their overall level of GDPR readiness.

Complete the assessment and your business will receive a grade alongside a summary of your preparedness. You'll also get detailed guidance on how GDPR will affect your business, including the supporting Microsoft technologies and features that could be leveraged to help achieve compliance.
