What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU legislation that came into force on 25th May 2018 and will apply to UK organisations of all sizes.
Although GDPR introduces some new and enhanced requirements, the principles for managing data are largely unchanged from the existing EU Data Protection Directive and the UK Data Protection Act 1998
Modern technologies have changed the way we work with data, and GDPR is designed to better control the way we work with personal data today and the way we are likely to work with it in the future.
Fundamentally GDPR is good news for everyone.
Does it affect me?
If you handle and store personal data, yes!
The law applies to any entity who processes or retains information on a citizen of the E.U.
Any company that deals with EU customer or employee personal details (paper-based or digitally) must must adhere to GDPR rules for their data. Breaking these laws can mean huge fines up to €20 million. It is essential for business owners to read up on this topic to avoid being punished.
The personal details of any EU customer or employee have to be kept secure and transparently by all companies processing or controlling their data – even if you are outside of the EU!
