SANTA BARBARA, CA (March 27, 2018)

Service Objects, the leading provider of real-time global contact validation solutions, today announced it will offer a free GDPR Data Quality Assessment to help companies evaluate their current GDPR preparedness ahead of the May 2018 Deadline.

To avoid the significant fines and penalties associated with the GDPR, businesses are required to make every effort to keep their contact data accurate and up-to-date.

Geoff Grow, Founder and CEO of Service Objects.

The evaluation will include an analysis of up to 500 records, testing for accuracy across a set of inputs including name, phone, address, email, IP, and country. After the assessment is complete, a composite score will be provided, giving businesses an understanding of the how close they are to being compliant with Article 5 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Article 5 requires organizations collecting and processing personal information of individuals within the European Union (EU) to ensuring all current and future customer information is accurate and up-to-date. Not adhering to the rules and regulations of the GDPR can result in a fine of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 Million (whichever is greater).

Recognizing the vital role contact data quality plays in GDPR compliance, Service Objects is offering a free data quality assessment to help those industries affected by the regulation to measure the accuracy of their contact records and prepare for the May 2018 deadline.

“To avoid the significant fines and penalties associated with the GDPR, businesses are required to make every effort to keep their contact data accurate and up-to-date” said Geoff Grow, CEO and Founder, Service Objects. “Service Objects’ data quality solutions enable global businesses to fulfill the regulatory requirements of Article 5 and establish a basis for data quality best practices as part of a broader operational strategy.”
