... since GDPR came into force. How confident are you about your compliance?

What is GDPR?

On 25 May 2018, the data protection regime under the Data Protection Act 1998 was replaced by the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), with significant implications for all organisations.

GDPR introduced tougher fines for non-compliance and breaches, and gives people more say over what can be done with their data. Subject access rights changed and there is now an onus on organisations to demonstrate compliance with data protection from the outset. This reflects and raises public expectations.

The GDPR increased penalties for non-compliance – fines can be up to 4% of total global annual turnover or €20m, whichever is greater.

All organisations, including small to medium-sized companies and large enterprises, have to take GDPR requirements seriously and be able to comply. May 2018 was only a start.

Fines can be up to 4% of total global annual turnover or €20m

You must be aware and be able to comply on an ongoing basis
