What is GDPR?
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) aims to harmonise and update current data protection laws to benefit half a billion citizens across the EU. The impending changes will impose stricter fines on companies mismanaging personal data or failing to protect it properly.
The GDPR is based on the principle of good data governance. At the heart is the idea of privacy being a fundamental right. For this to be achieved, it’s organisations must insist on ‘privacy by design’, ‘privacy by default’ and ‘accountability’.
