What is GDPR?

On May 25, 2018, the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect. It’s intended to standardise data protection legislation across the EU and update data protection laws to cover previously unforeseen data usage patterns. GDPR mandates that organisations anywhere in the world processing EU citizen data, reassess their data processing controls, and put a plan in place to better protect it.

GDPR implications

GDPR is viewed as one of the most aggressive data protection regulations in the world and is designed to consistently protect personal data for EU citizens. The regulation means that any organisation interacting with and storing the data of an EU citizen will be subject to fines for noncompliance.

GDPR is global

Just because your organisation is based outside of the EU, doesn’t mean you’re off the hook. Any organisation that processes EU citizen data, including organisations in the U.S., is subject to GDPR and will still be faced with the applicable penalties.

GDPR fines and penalties

While some organisations are looking at the GDPR as an opportunity to increase the association of their brand with protection of user data, and for overall business growth, there are also potential negative impacts from noncompliance.

The maximum size of the potential fines is 4% of global turnover (revenue/sales) or €20M, whichever is larger. But the GDPR fines aren’t just monetary. Part of the regulation gives the Supervisory Authority the power to effectively prohibit an organisation from doing business.
