Use Microsoft General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) readiness tools to help build your GDPR offerings The landmark European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) raises the bar for data privacy protection. The GDPR imposes new rules on organizations that offer goods and services to people in the European Union (EU), or that collect and analyze data tied to EU residents – no matter where they are in the world.
As the May 25, 2018 deadline for GDPR compliance approaches, many customers are unsure where to begin, and are looking for the technology, people and processes that will help in their compliance efforts. They are looking for help from partners to help assess their GDPR readiness. That includes evaluating their existing technology environments. The customer lifetime value of that assessment is very promising—including managed services, change management, technology reselling and support, end user training, and deployment services.
Microsoft is committed to being GDPR compliant when enforcement begins in May 2018 and is investing in our partners to help them make the most of this market opportunity. The GDPR Detailed Assessment is a tool that partners can use to assist customers in assessing where they are on their journey to GDPR readiness. It contains an extended set of questions and actionable guidance to help partners deliver assessment workshops and formulate statements of work to earn their customers’ confidence and business.

GDPR is complex and tools like this helps partners to better service their customers (and to be able to sell to people like Compliance Officers, Head of Legal etc)!
Building a practice around GDPR is a great opportunity for partners to do profitable projects around but also for building managed services. This is an area where I'm looking for companies to invest in as I especially believe in the managed services part.
