The frequency of data-related incidents could change with the impending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the EU’s law that comes into effect in May. The major update to the previous EU data protection law aims to regulate the use and treatment of an individual’s personal data.
A new regulation means organisations that use data will need to be more careful and explicit with gaining consent. After May, companies that maintain poor data protection practices will not only be breaking the law, but could face a hefty €20 million fine or four per cent of a company’s annual turnover.
Needless to say, the GDPR is a pretty big deal with even bigger consequences. Still, no need to panic. Here's everything you need to know about the GDPR.
