From May 25, 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be in force. Meaning that from that date the same privacy legislation will apply throughout the European Union. Do you already comply with the GDPR?

GDPR – the biggest changes

The GDPR contains:

    • Stronger and more extensive privacy rights
    • More responsibilities for organizations
    • The same, stronger competences for all European Data Protection Authorities, such as the competence to impose fines up to 20 million euros or 4% of the worldwide turnover.

An emphasis will lie on the responsibility of organizations. As an organization you must be able to show that you are compliant with the GDPR. This means, among other things, that you can show which personal data you collect, how you use data, how long you store it and how you secure it.

With these important preparations EY Law can assist. From maturity assessments to complete implementation procedures, we are there to assist in every step of the process.
