How does GDPR affect your organisation as well as create new opportunities?

Guide to GDPR

In May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR came into force. The regulation impact on organisations in all industry sectors is significant for many reasons. How does GDPR affect your organisation as well as create new opportunities?

GDPR is meant to cover any and all personal information routinely shared by residents in the course of doing business with any entity. An important first step will be for organisations to have clarity on how they manage personal information, including:

Stricter consent rules

The GDPR requires that individuals give unambiguous, informed consent before their data may be processed. Consent cannot be assumed from inaction.

Enhanced rights for data subjects

Individuals have more rights under the GDPR including rights to: have their personal data erased, have inaccurate data corrected, be removed from digital marketing, and request personal data be ported to another service provider.

Data breach notification

Organisations must notify those whose data has been breached, within 72 hours of the breach.

Increased accountability measures

There are a number of new governance requirements for subject organisations, including conducting privacy impact assessments and appointing a data protection officer.

Substantial fines

Maximum penalties are €20 million or 4% of annual global revenue, whichever is greater.
