The GDPR replaces the current Data Protection Act (DPA) extending the data rights of individuals and also requiring organisations to implement stronger procedures to protect an individuals personal data. All businesses should be assesing their interaction with individuals personal data and understanding how GDPR will impact them and the sector they operate in.
The Biggest implications for businesses.
- Maximum fines increased from £500,000 to €20 million or 4% of the organisation's global annual turnover, whichever is greater.
- Businesses will be held to a much higher level of diligence regarding the protection of data they hold.
- Individuals will enjoy more enhanced data rights than previously under DPA.
