  • Ensuring Your Compliance With E.U. Legislation

What is

Data Protection Compliance?

If your organization handles information about individuals, whether your employees, customers, members of the public or otherwise, it must handle it in compliance with the  General Data Protection Regulation, the Data Protection Act and various other laws and regulations.

You might not be aware of what these obligations are but take a look at some recent high profile breaches to get an idea of how far reaching the implications of failing to comply could be for your business. These include: –

  • Fines of up to (the greater of) €20,00,000 or 4% of global annual turnover for a serious breach;
  •  Compulsory audits and stop notices;
  • Enforcement action by the Regulator; and
  • Brand damage leading to loss of customer trust and confidence.

In todays competitive environment, these are things that all organisations will be keen to avoid. Click here to read about some recent headline grabbing failures.
