Why has this been created?

The GDPR has been created to standardize data protection regulations across the EU. The objective is to return control to individuals for their personally identifiable information (PII), while making organizations accountable for how they use and protect personal data. Compliance with the GDPR isn’t just a matter for data management professionals. The entire company has the responsibility to understand and comply with the regulation, and, therefore, GDPR education is essential for many groups, including marketing, website management, and mobile apps.

The GDPR will instigate substantial change to how businesses operate, which can also mean new opportunities and benefits for organizations. It forces organizations to handle data more responsibly, something these organizations should have been doing anyway. Internal groups like marketing will now practice better data management, which will result in better quality customer information.

The Objective

The objective of GDPR is to return control to individuals for their personally identifiable information, while making organisations accountable for how they use and protect personal data. Compliance isn’t just a matter for data management professionals therefore GDPR education is essential for management, marketing, website management, and mobile apps.

Should I Worry?

Organisation that handles or controls the personal data of any citizen in the EU or UK, even if the data is processed through a third party, it must comply with the GDPR / DPA, or face serious penalties as high as $24 million USD (€20 million) or 4% of global annual revenue (whichever is greater).

How To Comply

GDPR is not just a switch. It applies to all parts of the business that store personal data. Compliance is carefull planning and implementation and a very important outcome of all that work—but beyond compliance there is also a significant set of benefits for the business and marketing.
