EU GDPR: what it is and how companies can get compliant with it02/24/2017 by
Users’ personal data processing and management have now a new, specifically dedicated regulation, which was adopted by the EU in April 2016 and that will come into force on 25th May 2018.
The EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) focuses indeed on data protection and the current and crucial topic of privacy management.
The personal data at the heart of the European Commission regulation refers to all the information about an individual related to his/her private, professional or public life (from names to photos, from email addresses to bank details).
Companies are asked to review their data management systems inside the organization, as well as prevent data leaks and their unauthorized sharing. This news is the right occasion to redefine the internal policies and the staff training; all those companies that will get compliant with it will also have the chance to gain more trust from their users, reassured that their data is kept in total security.
The deadline to get compliant with the EU GDPR is 25th May 2018; in case of non-compliance, sanctions can reach 20 million euros, or up to the 4% of the total turnover of the previous year.
