GDPR QuizPosted in : Quiz on 20 April 2018
GDPR is the biggest development in data protection legislation in decades. In essence, it is designed to bring controls on how organisations process personal data into line with 21st century developments, like social media, e-commerce, mobile data and the cloud.
Fines of up to €20m or 4% of your global turnover could be imposed. If you have not prepared for the GDPR you will be exposing your organisation to those massive fines and the public relations nightmare that is sure to follow. Your reputation could be ruined. But the good news is even though the GDPR deadline date has passed, it's not too late to become compliant.
Challenge yourself with our GDPR quiz and see if you are prepared or unprepared. Be warned, it gets tougher as the quiz progresses.
