GDPR - Are you ready for the road ahead?

In 2016, the EU adopted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), replacing the 1995 Data Protection Directive. The European Commission has said that 90% of Europeans say they want the same data protection rights across the EU, regardless of where their data is processed. The reform of EU data protection rules mean people have more control over their personal data and businesses benefit from a level playing field.

These changes, which came into effect in May 2018, reflect an increased focus by the European Commission on data protection. The GDPR means one set of rules for all companies operating in the EU, wherever they are based. The following steps outline some of the key areas you should consider to help you prepare for the road ahead.

 

  1. Do your data and privacy processes demonstrate accountability?
  2. Can you respond to a Data Breach?
  3. Do you maintain sufficient Records of Processing?
  4. Are your Third Party Processors and Joint Controllers prepared?
  5. Are you aware of the Data Subject right?
  6. Are you safe from an attack on personal data?
  7. Do you need to complete Data Protection Impact Assessments?
  8. Have you prepared your employees?
  9. What is the cost of non-compliance?
