The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Key Themes
The countdown has started for organizations to get their data protection programs in order, now that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) approaches enforcement date.
The new regulation will be enforceable from 25th May 2018 and will require any Global organization that holds or processes EU resident data to put a much stricter focus on data protection. The headline items are:
- Organizations must notify the supervisory authority of a data breach within 72 hours
- The data subject will have the right to retract consent, request data erasure or data portability
- Organizations may face fines of up to 4% of their worldwide turnover, or €20 million (whichever is higher) for intentional or negligent violations
