IT Governance Publishing releases Italian edition of its bestselling book, EU GDPR: A Pocket Guide

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, February 15, 2017 / -- IT Governance Publishing (ITGP), the world’s leading IT GRC publisher, is pleased to announce the publication of a new Italian edition of its bestselling book: UE-RGDP: Guida tascabile by Alan Calder.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduces a number of new obligations for organisations that process EU residents’ personal data, and mandates tough fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million – whichever is higher – for all non-compliant organisations that suffer a data breach.

With less 15 months until the Regulation comes into effect in May 2018, organisations around the world are under increasing pressure to introduce the necessary changes to their data protection regimes.
