It will now also feature an EU component.
"The complexities of data protection laws in the European Union were a challenge," comments Terry McQuay, President, Nymity, "but Nymity's research team rose to the occasion and created an incredible compliance tool that will save organizations a lot of time and money." The tool features an Alerting Service, an EU Reference Database and a Data Protection Library.
