On May 25, 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect. With it comes a host of new rules about how companies, organisations and public authorities must handle personal data in the future.
The Personal Data Regulation applies to all companies that handle EU citizens’ personal data. It also involves companies outside the EU that offer goods or services to EU citizens.
Get a handle on the company’s personal data
As a company you must know who in your organisation has access to personal data and you must be able to document and report which personal data has been accessed.
It is just CPR numbers. Personal data also means genetic, mental, cultural, economic and social information. It can also be sensitive personal data about, for example, political attitudes, membership of professional organisations and sexual orientation.
Violation of the new guidelines in the Personal Data Regulation can have major consequences. Fines may be fined up to 20 million Euro, which may be issued for infringements back in time until 25 May 2018.
