Data protection and data breach notification are no longer a media relations issue or opportunistic PR choice: It is law, with fines amounting up to 4% of the organization’s worldwide turnover. Not complying to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) can lead to a financial drain equal to breaking EU Competition Law; a devastating amount for any business! The GDPR will affect almost every business that collects or handles the personal data of any European citizen. The legislation is welcome news for consumers who will get more say over how their data is handled, rights to be forgotten and transparency of data breaches. For organizations, the far-reaching nature of the GDPR means every aspect of a business will feel its impact and, in places, entire processes will need to be replaced or set up from scratch. GDPR covers a wide range of issues relating to personal data, such as privacy, monitoring and security. It compels businesses to apply privacy by design, disclose personal data breaches within 72 hours and encrypt the data they hold.
