The GDPR has been applicable since 25th May 2018, bringing with it the newest standards and requirements.
GDPR is the EU law that replaces the 1995 Data Protection Directive, which was until until 25th May 2018, the main standards for processing data in the EU. GDPR intends to heighten several rights for: Individuals – Who now have the right to demand companies disclose and or delete their personal data from a database. And Regulators – Who can now legitimately hold companies accountable for data protection breach across all EU member states and associated countries.
High Penalties warning only in cases of first and non-intentional non-compliance
Regular periodic data protection audits
A fine up to 20 million EUR or up to 4% of annual turnover for violations of basic data protection principles, data subject rights, and data transfer requirements
