The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which takes effect in May 2018, presents the most significant change to data protection laws in the EU since 1995 and will reset the best practice models for data privacy and data protection. It will directly impose a single data protection law for all EU member states and will also apply to non-EU companies, if they process personal data of EU-based individuals. The GDPR will increase privacy for EU-based individuals and give regulatory authorities greater powers to take action against businesses that breach the new law.
Preparing for GDPR is no small task—the regulation places specific requirements on organizations, such as recording processing activities, demonstrating accountability and reporting a breach within 72 hours of discovery. In addition, organizations could be liable for fines of up to 4% of annual global revenue (or 20 million euros, whichever is greater).
