“A business that is not GDPR compliant could face a fine of up to 4% of its annual turnover!”
December 5, 2017 – Croke Park, Dublin
Compliance is not a choice
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will definitely come into force on May 25 2018. It requires organisations to adhere to a host of strict data protection rules for processing the data of EU residents and will penalise those who are non- compliant. How ready are you to meet this deadline? It could be a costly mistake to ignore the regulation until it becomes enforceable!
Heralding a new era in the regulation of personal data processing in Europe, the GDPR amplifies and expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal information is collected and processed and places new obligations squarely on the shoulders of organisations that collect personal data.
Ignorance is not a defence
Businesses must prepare for the May 2018 deadline to have in place new standards for consent and the range of accountability requirements set out under the new law. Companies will no longer be able to sit on their hands and plead ignorance as non compliance will result in substantial fines of up to €20million or 4% of annual turnover. You need to get prepared… and fast!
But, every challenge also presents opportunity and compliance with GDPR allows you to present yourself as ethical, trustworthy and responsible. So, do you want to be trusted or fined?
