What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) standardizes data protection law across all 28 EU countries and imposes strict new rules on controlling and processing personally identifiable information (PII). It also extends the protection of personal data and data protection rights by giving control back to EU residents. The law which will become effective from May 2018 will replace erstwhile EU Data Protection Directive 1995.

FAQs

When will GDPR come into effect?

The General Data Protection Regulation will come into effect on 25th May, 2018. Any organisation which will not comply with the provision of this regulations will have to pay hefty fines.

We’re offering a free service — are we still obligated?

If you’re processing EU citizens’ personal data for purposes other than purely personal (or as a public authority), you’re required to comply.

We are B2B service company – Do we have to comply?

You’re still obligated to comply with the regulation. Depending on your business arrangement, you may be considered either a data controller directly, or a data processor, in which case you’re processing data on behalf of a controller. Responsibility for compliance is shared between both controllers and processors.

Further, if you’re processing EU citizens’ data on behalf of a controller, you’ll need to have specific contractual terms with any controller(s) laying out their expectations with regard to GDPR.

What is personal data?

‘personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person;

What’s Different from Previous Regulations?

This is a significant change from the previous law, which most courts generally agree only maintains jurisdiction over companies with an established business in a particular state. The law will impose significantly greater fines for data breaches (up to 4% of annual global revenue), require Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs), privacy and security “by design,” inventories and data mapping of personal information across your business systems, and mandatory appointments of Data Protection Officers (DPOs). You also need to prove that your organization is doing all of these things. This is not a small undertaking – it will require a major shift for many companies, including those that already have a privacy program.

What is the difference between data processor or controller?

As per GDPR, data controller is different from data processor. A controller analyses the purposes and means of processing personal data. On the other hand a data processor is responsible for processing personal data on behalf of a controller.

If you are a processor, the GDPR places specific legal obligations on you; for example, you are required to maintain records of personal data and processing activities. You will have legal liability if you are responsible for a breach.

However, if you are a controller, you are not relieved of your obligations where a processor is involved – the GDPR places further obligations on you to ensure your contracts with processors comply with the GDPR.

How does complying with GDPR benefit your business?

They are a couple of benefits for organisations to comply with GDPR-

  1. It improves and strengthens cyber security- In this digital era companies cannot afford to take the risk of cyber security ignorance or afford to lose critical data.
  2. Leads to stronger collaboration across business units- GDPR-regulated data can flow throughout all aspects of an organization — from finance to marketing, customer success teams and beyond.
  3. Builds customer loyalty- When your organisation complies with GDPR you build more trusting relationships with your customers.
