What is GDPR?


The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, was adopted by the European Parliament in April 2016, and will come into force on May 25, 2018. GDPR aims to harmonise data protection laws across the member states.

Equally importantly, the new regulation introduces several obligations for organisations that handle personal data – such as stricter mechanisms for obtaining consents, timely notification of a breach to the impacted party, and keeping the need for personal data to a minimum. Individuals who have provided their personal data will have several rights as per the new regulation. These include the right of access to and rectification of data; the right to object to specific types of processing; the right to restriction of processing; and the right to erasure of data, data portability, etc. These rules apply to both, the EU member states, and to organisations outside the Union when processing the data of citizens within it.

There are stiff penalties for non-compliance. Fines can go up to 4% of the annual turnover or 20 million Euros, whichever is higher.
