What Is GDPR And Do We Need It?

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) was introduced in May 2016 and will be enforced from May 25th 2018.

This replaces the existing Data Protection Act 1998.

Any company that systematically processes personal data will have to comply with the new regulations (includes cctv, employee data customer lists, prospects, transactions, website cookies).

You must be compliant by May 25th 2018. This means that data captured now must be compliant with the new regulations or you may be in breach when it is enforced.

Many updates in requirements mean that changes must be made now.

The ICO (Information Commissioners Office) will govern the regulations.

ICO have set up enforcement teams on a larger scale.

Fines of up to 4% of global turnover or £20m.

Many companies will be required to have a Data Protection Officer (these must be suitably qualified and independent).

Many will be required to make significant changes, adopt new processes and maintain them.
