What is GDPR?
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) sets a minimum standard for data protection in the EU, and it is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years.
The objectives of the GDPR is both to protect the rights and the privacy of people in the EU and to facilitate the free movement of data throughout the EU.
Some of the key aspects of the regulation include:
– Obtaining unambiguous consents to process the data
– Anonymising collected data to protect privacy
– Providing privacy breach notifications
– Safely handling the transfer of data across borders
– Requiring some companies to appoint a Data Protection Officer to oversee GDPR compliance
The GDPR came into force on 25th May 2018 and it applies to all companies that handle EU citizens’ data. Failure to achieve compliance is now subject to stiff penalties and fines that can go up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 Million.
