A 360° approach to GDPR
Hill Dickinson, The Compliance Foundation and Xyone Cyber Security have joined forces to offer the complete solution to the challenges that GDPR presents across governance and structure, process and policy, and technology.
On 25 May 2018, the data protection regime under the Data Protection Act 1998 was replaced by the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), with significant implications for all organisations.
GDPR introduces tougher fines for non-compliance and breaches, and gives people more say over what can be done with their data. As well as that, subject access has changed and there is an onus on organisations to demonstrate compliance with data protection from the outset.
The GDPR increases penalties for non-compliance – fines may be up to 4% of total global annual turnover or €20m, whichever is greater.
All organisations, including small to medium-sized companies and large enterprises, must be aware of all GDPR requirements and be able to comply.
