What is the GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became enforceable on May 25, 2018 and is intended to harmonize data protection laws throughout the European Union (EU) by applying a single data protection law that is binding throughout each member state.

GDPR protects any information that can be linked to an identifiable individual such as search-engine entries, employee authentication, payment transactions, closed-circuit-television footage, and visitor logs. The information can be in any format (structured or unstructured) and can be transferred in any medium including online, offline, or backup storage.

Key Principles of the GDPR

  • Right to access: data subjects have the right to obtain information as whether or not their information is being collected, where and for what purposes.
  • Right of revocation: data subjects have the right to request personal data to be erased, ceased from further dissemination, and stopped from processing by third parties.
  • Data portability: data subjects have the right to transmit their personal data to another organizations; no institution or organization has data ownership.
  • Breach notification: all organizations are required to notify customers and controllers about a data breach within 72 hours of first having become aware of the breach.
  • Privacy by design: organizations are legally required to include data protection when designing their systems.
  • Data protection officer: DPOs are created to monitor compliance, inform and advise on obligations, and serve as a direct link between data subjects and other authorities in each member states.

Why your organization should pay attention?

  • The regulation applies to all organizations processing the personal data of data subjects residing in the EU.
  • The location of your organization does not matter.
  • If your organization breaches GDPR, you can be fined up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 Million (whichever is greater).
