Why Read This Report

Few issues keep higher education executives awake at night more than data privacy. As the new European data protection law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), comes into effect on May 25, 2018, higher education institutions must position themselves to mitigate risk and strengthen compliance efforts. This comprehensive and complex law covers all processing of personal data, not just data that could be considered private. With this report, The Tambellini Group addresses what higher education needs to understand about GDPR, including how it impacts higher education, and what steps need to be taken to be in compliance. In the fast-changing world of cybersecurity and information governance, this report will prepare institutions for this new era in data protection.
