What is the GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the EU’s new legislation to protect the personal data of EU citizens. It has been born of a need to regulate data protection, amongst other data concerns, throughout the European member states by updating the now archaic 1995 Data Protection Directive (DPD). Organisations have a lead in period to become compliant, ending 25th May 2018.


 The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Will it affect me?

For businesses Any entity that handles personal data, whether it belongs to customers OR staff, will be subject to the GDPR. Realistically, anyone currently subject to the DPA will also be subject to the GDPR.
For individuals The GDPR gives you more control over the personal data a company holds about you and what they can do with it.

What does it mean for businesses?

The GDPR applies to any organisation that operates within the EU or with EU data. Failing to comply could lead to fines of up to €20m or 4% of your global annual turnover - whichever figure is larger. However, failing to comply is not simply a financial matter, it could have a significant impact on your organisation's reputation.

Here’s an overview of some of your new responsibilities:

       Keep a record of data operations and activities               Notify the supervisory authority of a data breach

       Review data processing processes                                 Implement “privacy by design” and “privacy by default”

       Carry out a data privacy impact assessment (PIA)         Consider if you will be required to designate a data protection officer


How  can Logiplex help?

Logiplex and our specialist partners clearly understand the requirements of GDPR. We know what questions to ask, we understand how companies use data so know where to look, we understand how hackers exploit vulnerabilities so we know what to do to protect systems. We will almost certainly save you time and money but will also save you the anxiety of working it out on your own.
