GDPR Readiness

The General Data Protection Regulation is the most comprehensive data regulation in the world, and unprecedented levels of change are needed for compliance – is your company ready?

It seems hard to believe, but there has not been a major EU directive regarding data protection since 1995. GDPR comes into effect in May 2018 – if you haven’t yet begun the process of becoming compliant, it is imperative that you begin now.

As you can imagine, a lot has changed since then, but the law is only just now catching up. After evaluating the inconsistencies in enforcement, complexity, legal uncertainty, and administrative costs incurred on behalf of the original Data Protection Directive, the EU has created the GDPR which will not only reinforce the safeguards around the way personal data is handled, but will also create a more uniform standard for all EU countries.

Fines for non-compliance can total 4% of a company’s global revenue or €20m, whichever is greater. Can your company afford to risk non-compliance?

The scope of GDPR is broad and far-reaching and includes:

FINES OF UP TO 4% OF ANNUAL WORLDWIDE TURNOVER

MANDATORY DATA PROTECTION OFFICERS

INCREASED ACCOUNTABILITY

MANDATORY PRIVACY IMPACT ASSESSMENTS

EXPLICIT CONSENT

CLEARLY ESTABLISHED CONTROLLERS AND PROCESSORS

PRIVACY BY DESIGN AND DEFAULT

NEW CONSUMER RIGHTS

MANDATORY BREACH NOTIFICATION

SUBJECT ACCESS REQUESTS

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF DATA

REVISED GUIDELINES FOR THOSE MARKETING TO CHILDREN

NON-COMPLIANCE IS NOT AN OPTION FOR ANY COMPANY WHO PROCESSES OR CONTROLS THE DATA OF ANY EU SUBJECT, AND WILL STILL APPLY TO THE UK, EVEN AFTER LEAVING THE EU.
