General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the European Union’s new data protection law. It replaces the Data Protection Directive (Directive”), which has been in effect since 1995.

GDPR carries provisions that require businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. The GDPR also regulates the exportation of personal data outside the EU. The GDPR will levy harsh fines against those who violate its privacy and security standards, with penalties reaching into the tens of millions of euros.

The GDPR defines several roles that are responsible for ensuring compliance: data controller (defines how personal data is processed and the purposes for which it is processed) , data processor (liable for breaches or non-compliance) and the data protection officer (liable for process ,store and monitor large amounts of EU & Non EU citizen data)

Why to Comply with the GDPR

The penalty for noncompliance can be up to € 20 million, or in the case of an undertaking, up to 4% of the total worldwide annual turnover of the preceding financial year, whichever is higher. The fines could be for the following reasons :

If regulators determine an organization has multiple GDPR violations, it will only be penalized for the most severe one, provided all the infringements are part of the same processing operation.
