GDPR

General Data Protection Regulation

48% of businesses are not ready for GDPR – is yours?

GDPR is coming into effect on the 25th May, 2018. That means that businesses have less than a year to make sure that their Business Systems and IT infrastructure is prepared for this new regulation. This will instigate major changes not only in privacy compliance programs and IT systems themselves, but also in how companies manage and process personal data.

What is GDPR? What is GDPR?

General Data Protection Regulation is an EU data protection directive, introducing a series of ‘data subject’ rights that are being introduced in 2018 to ensure that all EU residents have control over their personal data – and yes, GDPR will still affect the UK, despite our decision to leave the EU.

These rights include being able to obtain easily accessible information in plain language about the use of personal data and the personal data itself, ordering the alteration or deletion of incorrect personal data, the ability to restrict or object to the processing of personal data and more.

Why do I need to comply? Why do I need to comply?

Any companies that do not comply with the new regulations and suffer data breaches will be subject to massive fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million, whichever is greater.

Therefore, in the face of this potential financial penalty, and considering the risk to your reputation that non-compliance holds, GDPR compliance is essential. The easiest and surest way of doing this is employing the help of a GDPR consultancy firm, like Method IT.
