The GDPR in Context
You can find a lot of information on the GDPR online, with official documentation available on the website of the European Commission. Essentially, the GDPR has expanded and reinforced the rights of data subjects. These include:
- The right to be forgotten,
- The right to data portability, and
- The right to be informed of security breaches affecting personal data, as well as of processing applied to personal data.
These regulations apply not only to organizations within the European Union, but also to organizations in any of the following categories:
- Organizations with an established presence within the European Union
- Organizations providing goods or services to residents of the European Union
- Organizations monitoring the behavior of residents of the European Union
Offenders run the risk of heavy fines of up to 20 million euros or 4% of the organization’s annual global turnover.
There’s plenty of information available outlining the steps you need to take to comply. But what about a tool to help you put it all in place?
