Complying with the demands that the General Data Protection Regulation, UK Data Protection Act, and other data protection laws impose is proving a challenge for many businesses, especially as it has increased obligations for data controllers and data processors. 

The transition path from the previous legislation is not always simple and many organisations are not even sure where to begin.

If this sounds like you, then relax – our experienced GDPR practitioners are here to offer a helping hand.

Data Protection FAQs

The General Data Protection Regulation, the GDPR, or simply, GDPR, strengthens the data rights of EU residents and was introduced to harmonise data protection law across all member states to encourage the free flow of information and strengthen the rights of data subjects.

It has also significantly increased the potential fines organisations face for misusing data, and makes it easier for people to find out the information that organisations store about them. In a nutshell, it seeks to bring more transparency to people about the data that organisations collect, what they do with it and it enables people to have a say in how their data is processed.

GDPR became legally enforceable in all member states on 25th May 2018.

It depends – GDPR affects all companies, individuals, corporations, public authorities or other entities that offer goods or services to individuals in the EU or that monitor their behaviour there. For example, the GDPR applies to an American company whose website is made available to people in the EU, or a Philadelphia-based human resources manager in an international organisation that collects data centrally from EU-based applicants and employees. The GDPR also applies to charities and non-profit organisations that collect information from individuals in the EU.

Yes, and what’s more, noncompliance can result in massive fines. with penalties as big as 20 million euros (around $24 million), or 4 percent of annual global turnover — whichever is the greater amount of money. Supervisory authorities within the EU have “investigative and corrective powers” to monitor and impose these administrative fines. The supervisory authorities’ job is to closely observe corporate data practices and strictly enforce punishment if GDPR requirements are not met on May 25 — or any day thereafter.
