After much anticipation, our GDPR Essentials Training is now live!
What is GDPR?
I'd be surprised if you haven't already heard of the GDPR by now, but just in case...
The GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and has technically already been enforced, although companies have until the 25th of May to be fully compliant. The GDPR will change the way that data is handled and processed. It gives EU residents a whole new set of rights, some of which include:
- The right to control personal data.
- The right to obtain complete access to personal data.
- Correct or permanently remove their data.
- Deny the use of their personal data.
It will also change rules of how data is collected and how long it can be kept for.
Why it should be taken seriously...
There are huge fines - these fines are split into two tiers. Organisations that breach the regulation could be fined up to 2% of annual turnover or in more serious cases, up to €10 million and that's only tier one. Tier two could see you fined either 4% or up to €20 million, whichever is greater. Generally speaking, breaches of data subjects' rights and freedoms will face a higher tiered fine whereas breaches of controller or processor obligations will be fined within the first tier.
