With just over 12 months to go until organisations need to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), it’s more important than ever to look at what you need to do to prepare.
What is the GDPR?
From 25 May 2018, the GDPR will affect every organisation that collects or handles data relating to EU residents.
Introduced to keep pace with the digital landscape, the new Regulation aims to reinforce individuals’ data protection rights and to simplify the free flow of personal data in the EU by applying a consistent data protection framework across the member states.
Failure to meet the requirements could turn out to be costly with fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million, whichever is greater. More information about the GDPR >>
