Personal Data Protection – GDPR
BRIEF HANDBOOK ON THE PROPER APPLICATION OF THE GDPR (GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION) IN BUSINESSES
Ever since the new European regulation on the protection of personal data (GDPR) was voted in, businesses have started their countdown to the transition that will take place in May 2018. They now have less than 2 years to comply with the new European regulation and the consequences of its new requirements in terms of data protection: strengthened cybersecurity, liability of data collection entities and new mandatory procedures. Deliberations, which began in 2011, gave rise to a new draft law legislating the protection of personal data.
For organizations, what this entails now is the need to review their procedures and ensure their regulatory compliance before it starts raining sanctions. This white paper aims to address the question by providing a simplified interpretation of the regulation and practical solutions for a smooth transition.
