The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation approved by the European Parliament. It applies to all organisations that handle and process EU citizens’ data, regardless of whether they’re located in the European Union or not. Failure to meet GDPR requirements can result in huge penalties: 4% of annual global turnover (revenue) or €20 million, whichever is greater.
The GDPR was created to replace the Data Protection Directive, which has been used in the EU for over 20 years. There are several key changes, also known as rights, introduced to the GDPR that organisations must address; thinking about them now is critical to successful compliance. For some companies, GDPR rights may require excessive work and planning if the requested processes aren’t already implemented.
