As of May 2018, organisations that handle and process the data of EU residents must comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a regulation for protecting the personal data of individuals in the digital age that has superseded the Data Protection Act (DPA). Using data analysis and monitoring technologies, you can keep on top of GDPR requirements and have peace of mind that you are compliant.
An organisation must understand its data, what it is used for and under what legal basis it is allowed to process the data. GDPR places a greater duty upon organisations to protect the privacy of personal data. Among the requirements laid out by the GDPR are a broader definition of personal data, required consent for dealing with children’s data, restrictions on international data transfers and portability, the right for individuals to be “forgotten” and assessments for higher-risk data activities. For many organisations, just becoming compliant with GDPR is a huge undertaking, let alone ensuring that they remain compliant.
