GDPR

In The spring of 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaced all other data protection regulations within Europe. This is important to know and understand, as there is the potential for huge fines: up to €20million, or 4% of the company’s global turnover (whichever is higher). The main purpose of GDPR is to protect the data rights of EU citizens, along with their privacy (i.e their personal data). Anyone who does business within the European single market will need to comply with the new laws. This includes no-EU businesses who have dealings with EU customers.

Who Needs Data Protection?

We have had data protection regulations in the UK for many years, offering individuals the protection they need over their personal data. Personal data is any information about a person which could lead to them being identified from it, such as their name, address, date of birth, political or religious opinion or even more sensitive information such as medical records, or criminal records. The current data protection laws lays down rules about how data about people can be used. This includes information stored on computers or in paper filing systems about living people. These laws are soon to be upgraded to the new General Data Protection Regulations – a set of regulations laid down by the EU. It is essential that businesses understand these new regulations, as they will affect almost every business within the UK.

Data Security Breaches

As part of the new GDPR rules, it is the responsibility of the business or their data protection officer to report any data breaches to the relevant authority. A data breach is the deliberate or accidental release of secure (private or confidential) information to an untrusted source. These can include data leaks and spills as well as accidental release of data.

Data breach can be highly serious, depending on the nature of the breach, as well as the nature of the information released. Data breaches may involve financial information such as credit card or bank details, which can be incredibly stressful and potentially dangerous for those involved.

The difference with GDPR data breach rules and the current regulations is that currently, there are no obligations on businesses to give notification about personal data breaches to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), whereas under the new rules, it will be essential to notify the ICO of any data breach within a 72 hour period. This will put a great strain onto data protection officers, unless they have had full training in the new regulations and their changing roles.
