Whether you’re a B2B or B2C customer of Educated Change you have to deal with the EU’s new regulation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It’s a new set of laws aimed at enhancing the protection of EU citizens’ personal data and increasing the obligations of organizations to deal with that data in transparent and secure ways. The GDPR applies not only to EU-based businesses, but also to any business that controls or processes data of EU citizens.

We have been hard at work ensuring that our own practices are GDPR-compliant by May 25th, 2018. If you need help please talk to any of our employees, we are happy to share what we have learned.  

Our focus is on making sure all parts of our business have full GDPR compliance.

What we have also learned is that we need to make certain the social media companies and platforms you and we use to help you communicate (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, etc.) provide you the protections and security you require for yours and your networks data.  We expect some small changes in between now and May 25th (and beyond), as we are fully committed to enhancing the Educated Change products and process to enable easier compliance with the GDPR.
