GDRP Compliance check

Are you ready for GDRP?

What is GDPR?

The European Parliament adopted The General Data Protection Regulation GDPR in April 2016, replacing an outdated data protection directive from 1995. It carries provisions that require businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. The GDPR also regulates the exportation of personal data outside the EU

Among the new rules, provision include:

  • Consent to process private data
  • Pseudonymisation of the data
  • Full inventory and records or processing activity and private data
  • A right for an individu to be forgotten
  • Ensuring that privacy policies are explained in clear and understandable language,
  • Data protection by design and by default
  • Data breach notification within 72 hours
  • Companies need to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO)
  • Organisations based outside the EU must adhere to the same rules as European based companies if they process personal data of EU residents.


    When does your company need to be GDPR compliant ?

    It becomes enforceable from 25 May 2018 after a two-year transition period and, unlike a directive, it does not require national governments to pass any enabling legislation, and is thus directly binding and applicable.

    What happens if your company is not compliant?

    Several sanctions can be imposed, ranging from a simple warning in writing of non-compliance to up to $20 million EUR or 4% of the annual worldwide turnover of the preceding financial year in case of an enterprise, whichever is greater.
