Engine for Innovation


Apart from the threats for non-compliance, including hefty fines and damaging brand reputation, GDPR is a positive step forward—and a key factor driving the need for digitization.


The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, is much more than a regulatory obligation—it is an opportunity to drive efficiency, build trust and create new business opportunities.

With ready access to information online, customers expect more transparency and responsiveness from the custodians of their data. That’s why in today’s digital economy, businesses are looking for ways to delight their customers and establish trust. However, digital at scale is only successful if GDPR compliance is the core of their data, product and services strategy.

We are past the GDPR enforcement deadline. Are you compliant?

Whether you are just beginning your GDPR implementation process or have a mature privacy program in place, Cognizant can help ensure your privacy initiative is both GDPR-compliant and poised to become a key competitive asset.


Making the GDPR Journey Meaningful

While minimum GDPR standards cover EU citizens (customers and employees) and must be demonstrably in place by May 25, 2018, the journey does not end there. Past this deadline, regulators will look for a consistent methodology for analyzing data security risk.

Through a comprehensive GDPR implementation plan, supported by appropriate tools and technologies, businesses can improve their chances of adhering to the compliance. GDPR, approached in the right way, can enable organizations to thrive in a digital economy—and deliver a superior customer experience.

Achieving full GDPR-compliance implies updating your data governance, consent and data management. This, in turn, will lead to improved customer satisfaction.

Preparing for Digital Transformation

As businesses embark on digital transformation and leverage sensitive data to improve or create new services, they must also be accountable for governing and protecting this data. GDPR presents a unique opportunity to build trust and to drive the digital revolution.

Cognizant’s approach to GDPR, called GDPR+, recognizes the level of complexity that the regulation itself presents and offers pragmatic solutions. Our approach is founded on four critical areas of focus: Personal Data, People, Process and Technology. Depending where you are on your GDPR journey, we offer end-to-end GDPR solutions as well as bespoke ones to suit your business requirements.

Using GDPR+, you can transform today’s GDPR investment into real business value in key digital technologies, including consent data sharing, enhanced customer views, profiling, AI and analytics.
