Who is affected?
Any company that:
• Has a presence in an EU country.
• Don’t have a presence in the EU, but process the personal data of European residents.
• Has more than 250 employees.
• Has fewer than 250 employees but your data-processing impacts the rights of data subjects or includes
certain kinds of sensitive personal data.
What does the numbers say?
• 92% of U.S. companies consider GDPR a number one data protection priority (PwC survey);
• 50% of the companies affected by GDPR will not be in full compliance by the end of 2018 (Gartner);
• Enforces fines of up to €20 million or 2-4% of global turnover, whichever is greater.
Individuals rights and roles definition
The most important feature of the GDPR is that it clearly defines what individual’s rights are:
Individual rights to
Access their own personal data
Rectify inaccurate personal data
Challenge automated decision making
Object to direct marketing
“To be forgotten”
What changed? Where are the regulations tighter?
Major changes Explanation
Increased Territorial Scope GPDR makes it very clear - it will apply to the processing of personal data by controllers and processors in
the EU, regardless of whether the processing takes place in the EU or not.
The conditions for consent are strengthened. Consent must be clear and distinguishable from other matters
and provided in an intelligible and easily accessible form, using clear language, for every data capture.
The data controller must report data breaches to the data protection authorities without undue delay and in
any event within 72 hours of the time of becoming aware of a data breach.
Right to Access The controller has to provide a copy of the personal data, free of charge, in an electronic format.
Right to be Forgotten
The right to be forgotten entitles the data subject to have the data controller erase his/her personal data,
cease further dissemination of the data, and potentially have third parties halt processing of the data. (no
longer relevant to original purposes for processing, or data while withdrawing consent)
The right for a data subject to receive the personal data concerning them, which they have previously
provided in a 'commonly use and machine readable format' and have the right to transmit that data to another
Privacy by Design Inclusion of data protection from the onset of the designing of systems, rather than an addition.
Best practices from our industry
This type of partial encryption technique means that personal data can no longer be attributed to a
specific data subject without the use of additional information, and that information is kept
separately and can be thought of as an encryption key. It enhances security, and allows much freer
use of data under the workings of the GDPR.
from tech partners
Under the GDPR, consent given by the customer is valid only if customers give it freely, based
on clear and specific information for each processing operation needed. Under the old rulings
such operations could be bundled together; that is no longer the case.
Ex. AWS has its DPA that will meet the requirements of the GDPR which is available to all AWS
customers. Need to contact our AWS account manager.
Who needs a dedicated Data Protection Officer (DPO)?
The GDPR Section 4, states that Data Protection Officers are to be appointed if:
(a) the processing is carried out by a public authority or body, except for courts acting in their judicial capacity;
(b) the core activities of the controller or the processor consist of processing operations which, by virtue of their nature, scope
and/or purposes, require regular and systematic monitoring of data subjects on a large scale; or
(c) the core activities of the controller or the processor consist of processing on a large scale of special categories of data pursuant
to Article 9 of the GDPR and personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences referred to in Article 10 of the GDPR.
Importantly, the DPO:
• Must be appointed on the basis of professional qualities and, in particular, expert knowledge on data protection law and practices;
• May be a staff member or an external service provider;
• Contact details must be provided to the relevant DPA;
• Must be provided with appropriate resources to carry out their tasks and maintain their expert knowledge;
• Must report directly to the highest level of management;
• Must not carry out any other tasks that could results in a conflict of interest.
The good news is Cleeng can handle most of the sensitive user data management, and with our strong European base and
background, many of this functions can be off-loaded to us.Want to know more? Contact us
