GDPR - THE EU GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION

Are you ready for 25th May 2018?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) significantly reshapes the data protection landscape for organisations worldwide that collect and process the data of European residents.

The Regulation also imposes fines up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million (whichever is higher), grants extended rights to data subjects and allows data subjects to bring legal action against organisations in case of data breach.

COUNTDOWN TO GDPR

The GDPR will be enforced from 25 May 2018. UK organisations that process the personal data of EU residents have only a short time to ensure that they are compliant.

Introduced to keep pace with the modern digital landscape, the GDPR is more extensive in scope and application than the current Data Protection Act (DPA). The Regulation extends the data rights of individuals, and requires organisations to develop clear policies and procedures to protect personal data, and adopt appropriate technical and organisational measures.

The Brexit question

UK organisations handling personal data will still need to comply with the GDPR, regardless of Brexit. The GDPR will come into force before the UK leaves the European Union, and the government has confirmed that the Regulation will apply, a position that has been confirmed by the Information Commissioner.
