This interactive event will feature data quality expert Tom Redman, President of Data Quality Solutions, who will provide an overview of the regulation recently enacted by the EU, and why US businesses need to pay attention. He will also discuss how engaging in data quality best practices not only makes it easier to achieve compliance, but also makes good business sense.

According to Forrester Research, 80% of firms affected by the GDPR will not be able to comply with the regulation by the May 2018 deadline. Seeing the important role that data quality plays in complying with GDPR, Service Objects decided to host a webinar to provide information to those looking to get started.

“Businesses can incur fines up to $20 million Euros or 4% of a company’s annual revenue for not complying with the GDPR,” said Geoff Grow, Founder and CEO of Service Objects. “GDPR requires that every effort is taken to keep contact data accurate and up-to-date. Service Objects’ data quality solutions can help businesses meet this requirement, as well as identify which contacts reside in the EU and therefore fall under the GDPR.”
