Think GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) doesn’t affect you? Think again.

Rosalind Morville

Do you collect, store or process EU citizen or resident data? Does anyone in your organization? What about your third parties? If you don’t know the answers to these questions – for sure – you could violate GDPR come May 2018.

Intended to give European Union residents and citizens greater control, this regulation imposes strict rules on how personally indefinable information or PII is collected, stored and used. All entities using EU resident or citizens data are expected to use “fair and lawful” data processing, share details (upon request) of how and why data was collected, inform citizens of data sharing among third parties, and protect this data. Among other things. If you don’t comply, hefty fines may ensue. And, you are responsible for ensuring your third-parties comply as well.
