Key Findings & Highlights:

The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation adopted on April 8th, 2016 and will be put into force on May 25th, 2018. The regulation is the result of four years of preparation and debate by the EU Parliament, with an aim to bring data protection up to date as the previous legislation, the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC) being terribly outdated.

GDPR has stricter controls and definitions on:

  • The data that GDPR applies to
  • When organizations can process personal data
  • The definition of consent
  • The control a data subject has over its data
  • Obligations for controllers and processors.

The regulation imposes higher fines for non-compliance, the fines are divided into two categories:

  • Fines of up to €20 million or 4% of worldwide annual turnover for the preceding financial year whichever is greater for serious cases such as large breaches
  • Fines of €10m or 2% of worldwide annual turnover in less serious cases such as procedural failures.
  • While organizations should be undergoing action to meet the requirements of GDPR to avoid these hefty fines, there are a number of other benefits that arise in working towards this level compliance:
  • GDPR can be seen as a chance to review the company’s data handling processes, restructuring them not only to meet compliance but also to identify potential efficiency gains or new business opportunities/revenue streams
  • Increasing the level of security of personal data through encryption or pseudonymization will build trust with users, as breaches of the organization's cybersecurity are less likely to impact them
  • In performing a review of IT processes, organizations will be able to identify and eliminate ‘shadow IT’ and build proper processes that are known to the organization
  • By being shown to work with the supervisory authorities and trying to protect personal data, organizations will presumably have less reputational damage if they have a personal data breach
  • Greater cybersecurity intelligence and mindshare from training and from forcibly raising the profile of cybersecurity to the C-level (see DPO)
  • It is a chance to improve IT systems and processes behind the scenes, e.g., through the implementation of customer identity and access management (CIAM) and by moving away from old-style backup systems.
