The GDPR is the EU General Data Protection Regulation which will replace the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK and the equivalent legislation across the EU Member States.
Organisations will have to fully comply with the GDPR by 25 May 2018
GDPR has a very stringent data protection compliance administration with severe and rigorously imposed financial penalties of up to 4% of global gross revenue or €20,000,000 – whichever is greater – for non-compliance.
It’s important to remember that it’s you and your organisation that will be held accountable if there is a data breach; not your IT team or contracted IT provider.
