Data Protection - Compliance is a top-level sport

In this article, Renate Verheijen, Legal & HR Counsel at Madison Gurkha, maps out the consequences of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and guides you through the challenges that lie ahead. Find out how you are doing and what steps you need to take to become or remain compliant. Data processors have been given until May 25, 2018—regardless of whether they are based inside or outside the EU—to switch to a data processing method that complies with all the requirements and standards set out in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)1.

Since we tend to be rather enthusiastic about gathering personal data for general or commercial objectives, the European Union has set itself the task of creating a forceful, coherent framework for data protection and ensuring that the only personal data processed is the data required for the purpose for which it is used. Given the content, scope and number of provisions, it appears that the outcome is more comprehensive than just a framework. It concerns a reasonably strict set of obligations that need to be observed by anyone processing personal data.
