GDPR took affect on 25 May 2018 and applies to all organisations processing the personal data of EU citizens, creating new rights for individuals and strengthening a number of the rights that currently exist under the Data Protection Act. It addresses many of the shortcomings in the current Data Protection Directive; adding requirements for companies to document their procedures – including provisions that promote accountability and governance when it comes to the data they collect, store and use to communicate.
The government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR, as a result, the new regulations have put a significant pressure on all businesses – large or small – to show compliance. If they fail to do so, organisations could face significant fines of up to €20 million or 4% of the company’s global annual turnover of the previous financial year, whichever is higher.
