About the Webinar

There’s no question that organizations across the globe are ramping up their efforts to prepare for the EU’s expansive General Data Protection Regulation.  In a recent Veritas survey, over 92% of organizations admitted some degree of preparation, yet only 53% are confident they will be GDPR-ready when the go-live date hits in May 2018.  Most organizations are launching their readiness efforts focused on structured data—the data they are most familiar with and have the most control over.  The problem is that structured data only makes up one-fifth of all the data in a typical enterprise environment…what are these organizations going to do about the other 80% of unstructured data?

GDPR (and the stiff penalties that come with it) is the forcing mechanism that will finally drive organizations to take a proactive governance posture when it comes to unstructured data.  This session will explore the key steps required for accelerating GDPR readiness by locating, searching, minimizing, protecting, and monitoring unstructured data.  By attending this session, you will learn best-practices for staying off the regulator’s hit list and establishing the most effective workflows for ensuring ongoing unstructured data compliance.
