Be Prepared for GDPR

Austin Heyd

Change is becoming imminent with the implementation of the new GDPR regulations about to hit companies, individuals and anyone who deals with any form of sensitive data. As it applies to data collection that impacts any EU citizen, whether you’re based in an EU country or not, the reach of the GDPR does affect you. These new regulations take effect on 25 May 2018.

What is GDPR

In short, the GDPR is a data privacy regulation that modernises and normalises data privacy laws across Europe and applies to any organisation collecting data on EU citizens. Any organisation found not to be adhering to these new GDPR laws could find themselves with a fine of 4% of annual turnover or €20 million, whichever is greater.
