The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU regulation designed to modernise data protection legislation. Under the GDPR, new requirements will apply to the retention and processing (and consent thereof) of personally identifiable information (PII).
Does it apply to me?
- All organisations that process the PII of EU residents will need to be compliant
- PII refers not only to consumer data, but that of your staff too
- Regardless of Brexit, UK organisations handling personal data will still need to comply
Why is it important to comply?
Fines for non-compliance can be up to €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover. Aside from potential fines, non-compliant businesses will also be more susceptible to breach, reputational
damage and other risks.
