Deadline for compliance: 25th May 2018
Current law: Data Protection Act 1988
Location: All countries within the EU, including the UK, despite Brexit
Who does it apply to: all organisations and businesses
Aim: reshape the way organisations use, interact with, store, and share data. Heavily focuses on the protection of personal data and rights, applying to both automated data and manual filing systems.
Effect: penalties and fines for non-compliance. Fines of 4% of your annual turnover, or £20 million – whichever is greater.
Who to notify: If your organisation faces a data breach, you must notify the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) within 72 hours of the breach and your hack will become public information.
Who to employ: companies are required to have a Data Protection Officer (DPO).
