Boston, MA February 6, 2018 – Oceanos to release a Contact Data Screen solution to help organizations comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which is scheduled to go into law on May 25, 2018.

Brian Hession, President & Founder of Oceanos, stated, “GDPR impacts contact data provisioning regardless of geography.  Although the law is specific to the European Union our research indicates up to 4% of U.S. contacts records represent a person residing outside of the United States.  This poses a significant risk since there’s a good chance that a percentage reside within one of the twenty-eight GDPR affected countries.  Our GDPR Contact Data Screen helps clients identify European Union residents and mitigate risk.”


Oceanos is offering their GDPR Contact Data Screen at no charge.  More advanced screening options are available at a nominal fee. “It’s the responsibility of a data management firm like Oceanos to help client comply by closing the risk gap.  Our free diagnostic screen, available via our Cloud Portal, is a first step towards compliance”, said Brian Hession, President & Founder of Oceanos.
