 FAQs regarding GDPR

The new law has already been enforced but you have until the 25th of May 2018 to be fully compliant. 

Who will the GDPR effect?

The GDPR applies to personal data, so anyone handling or processing personal data will undoubtedly feel the effects of GDPR and will need to prepare accordingly for its enforcement. 

What constitutes as personal data? 

Current data protection directives state that personal data is "any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject");", this can include a name, email address, posts on social media, medical information, photos or even a computer IP address. 

Are there new penalties?

Yes, and they're pretty steep. Organisations can now be fined 4% of their annual turnover or in more serious cases - €20 million! (This is the maximum fine that can be imposed for the most serious infringements). 

Does Brexit have any effect on GDPR?

Brexit is going to take at least 2 years to take full effect, therefore UK businesses will need to be ready for GDPR.
