GDRP - Compliance - eXploit-Hunter

PDF Version

The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 25 May 2018. This is a reform of the old law, standardizing protections for personal information across the EU. Organisations will have to take measures to comply, or otherwise be subject to sanctions by the EU. This is another victory for the average consumer anywhere in the world, because any organisation dealing with an international audience will have to comply with the EU law. For all of us, whether you live in the EU or not, we can sleep better at night knowing that our personal information is a lot safer. There are also cost savings and red tape reductions for businesses to enjoy, with some benefits applying in particular to small/medium enterprises (SMEs).

Who does this apply to?

The law applies to all organisations that collect and manage the personal information of EU citizens, and also any organisation based in the EU, even if they do not deal with EU citizens. This includes any website that would be viewed by someone living in the EU, which would mean basically all public websites.

What does the law change for consumers?

  1. Organisations will have to make it clear to you how your data is processed;
    b. It will be easy to transfer your personal data between service providers;
    c. You have the right to be 'forgotten' – organisations are required to delete your data when you no longer want it to be processed, provided that there are no legitimate grounds for retaining it;
    d. You have the right to know when your data has been hacked – organisations must notify the national supervisory authority of serious data breaches as soon as possible so that users can take appropriate measures.

What does the law change for organisations/businesses?

  1. There is only one set of EU rules now that needs to be complied with;
    b. Organisations/businesses will only have to deal with one single supervisory authority (saving an estimated £2 billion per year);
    c. Increased penalties for non-compliance – from the previous upper limit of £500,000, penalties have increased to £17.7 million or 4% of annual global turnover – whichever is higher.
