Living in the GDPR World – What Now?

Overview

Some time has passed since the implementation of the groundbreaking EU GDPR  legislation on 25th May 2018.  Companies and organisations who have taken the initial necessary steps to prepare for the introduction of the demanding legal framework are wondering what now?

The answer is that the EU General Data Protection Regulation is a mandatory constant for all businesses, organisations, charities, clubs who collect and process personal information of customers clients, patients, employees. 

There is no room for complacency.

Those businesses and organisations who have not been so proactive and have remained complacent must realise that the seismic changes that the EU GDPR has introduced will impact their business and organisations. Since 25th May 2018, there have been a number of high profile data breaches illustrating that companies and organisations are struggling to meet their legal obligations as demanded by the EU GDPR.

Interestingly, in recent weeks the first EU GDPR fine has been issued to a single individual, an Austrian Entrepreneur who violated the use of CCTV. 

It is critical that the corporate world and organisations continue to be aware of their legal responsibilities under the EU GDPR regime and eliminate gaps and mitigate the risks associated with failure to comply.
