The General Data Protection Regulation of the EU has changed how personal data is collected, shared and used globally. GDPR is a new regulation designed to enhance data protection for EU citizens by helping regulate data protection measures within the EU, as well as data relating to EU citizens within non-EU organisations
The penalties for failing to comply with GDPR are severe – up to 4% of annual global turnover or 20 million Euros, whichever is higher.
To ensure GDPR compliance, organisations will need to make changes to policies, processes and contracts, as well as in technical and organisational measures. In some instances, those changes could be complex and significant.
