Preparation is the Key.

New EU regulation on the protection of personal data – GDPR – comes in force 25 May 2018 and the responsibilities of data controllers will now become even stricter.

 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) very significantly increases the obligations and responsibilities for organisations and businesses in how they collect, use and protect personal data. At the centre of the new law is the requirement for organisations and businesses to be fully transparent about how they are using and safeguarding personal data, and to be able to demonstrate accountability for their data processing activities.

WHAT’S THE PROCESS?

We then add the Privacy Policy along with, opt-in forms and data request forms, across your website.

4

We ensure your CRM (example: MailChimp) is integrated correctly and set up to comply with GDPR legislation.

Finally, we present the compliancy process to a nominated employee, assigned the role of :``Data Protection Officer`` in your company.

What is the GDPR?

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the result of four years of work by the EU to bring data protection legislation into line with new, previously unforeseen ways that data is now used.

If I don't comply and I am breached, what happens?

The GDPR makes it considerably easier for individuals to bring private claims against data controllers if their data privacy has been infringed. Even if they have suffered non-material damage as a result of an infringement, they can still sue for compensation.
Breached organisations can expect fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater. Note, this refers to turnover, not profit.

My business is not based in the E.U. do I still have to comply?

If your business is not in the EU, but you sell to EU customers, you will still have to comply with the Regulation.

Do I need a special officer for this new regulation?

It will be mandatory to appoint a DPO (data protection officer) for certain companies, including public authorities and large-scale data processing firms.

What are some of my responsibilities under the GDPR?

1.Data controllers will be required to conduct privacy impact assessments where privacy breach risks are high. 2. Data controllers will be required to report data breaches within 72 hours. 3.Data subjects have the “right to be forgotten”.
