WHAT IS THE EU GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union (EU).
GDPR compliance is not just a matter of ticking a few boxes; the Regulation demands that you demonstrate compliance with the data protection principles. This involves taking a risk-based approach to data protection, ensuring appropriate policies and procedures are in place to deal with the principles of transparency and accountability, as well as individuals’ rights and building a workplace culture of data privacy and security.
With the appropriate compliance framework in place, not only will you be able to avoid significant fines and repetitional damage, you will also be able to show customers that you are trustworthy and responsible and derive added value from the data you hold.
