The GDPR and What It Means to the Global Print Industry

This IDC Perspective examines the impact of the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the global print industry with specific focus on the ramifications of paper and digital content security."Digital transformation, the 3rd Platform, and innovation accelerators have combined to create an explosive increase of data and documents that is more readily accessible. The fact that a significant portion of such content contains sensitive information makes it incumbent upon organizations to comply with the rise in government and industry mandates regarding its use," said Keith Kmetz, IDC's program vice president for Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions. "The GDPR is the latest example of how companies must put a priority on securing individuals' personal content or face serious consequences."
