The GDPR is the EU Regulation that will replace the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK and the equivalent legislation across the EU Member States. All UK business will be subject to GDPR from 25th May 2018, regardless of Brexit.

Failure to comply could cost you fines of up to 4% of your company’s global annual turnover, not to mention your reputation (source: www.ico.org).

Here’s a snapshot of what GDPR will require you to do:

1

Keep a record of data operations and activities and consider if you have the required data processing agreements in place.

2

Carry out privacy impact assessments (PIAs) on products and systems.

3

If applicable to your organisation, designate a Data Protection Officer (DPO).

4

Review your personal data collection processes.

5

Know how and when to notify the relevant supervisory authority of a data breach.

6

Implement “privacy by design” and “privacy by default” in the design of all new and existing products.
