5 Steps to GDPR
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018. All organisations that process the personally identifiable information of EU residents will be required to abide by its provisions or face significant penalties.
GDPR makes provisions for considerably tougher penalties than the UK Data Protection Act. Organisations that breach the GDPR law provisions can expect fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million (£17 million), whichever is greater. Clearly fines of this scale can easily lead to business insolvency and, in some
cases, bring businesses down.
UK organisations that do business in the EU with EU data subjects’ personal data have to comply with the regulation even if you’re not based in the EU.
Data breaches today are commonplace and typically increase in scale and severity with each passing month,
leading to damaging headlines. No organisation is bulletproof when it comes to data security so it’s vital that they are all aware of their new obligations under GDPR. The following Five Steps to GDPR highlight the key measures you need to take to ensure you are on the right road to full GDPR compliance.
