On 25th May 2018 the EU-GDPR becomes effective, this date has been set to give organisations time to prepare and comply with the regulations. This may seem to be a long way off, but for most organisations there is a lot to be done.
With the escalation of data breaches, the sooner data is safe guarded the better. Often a data breach is not discovered for months, sometimes six months, implementing new policies, security systems, negotiations with suppliers and training people in an organisation will take time. The sooner you start the more time you have to make a good decision on the options you face.
This introductory course will give you an overview of the history of Data Protection within the EU and introduce you to the enhancements and new obligations imposed by the EU GDPR.
Data protection law in the EU is about to undergo the most significant changes since the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive. The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in May 2016 and you have until May 2018 to become fully compliant. The new law will require significant preparatory work that you should begin now.
Will the EU GDPR apply to my business?
Does your organisation acquire, store, process, distribute, manage, modify or analyse any data which can be used to identify an EU citizen OR does your organisation trade with EU citizens?
If you answered YES, then no matter whether your organisation is based in the EU or elsewhere in the world, then the EU GDPR will apply to your business. Even though the EU-GDPR is an EU regulation, it has a global reach. If an organisation is outside of the EU it MUST still comply IF it handles, stores, manages, or processes EU citizens' personal data.
The new Regulation will impose many legal obligations on organisations that control or process data and will afford new rights to those whose personal data is being held. The financial penalties for non-compliance will be very substantial so it is absolutely vital that your organisation is fully prepared as early as possible.
