Compliance with GDPR Regulations
The EU General Data Protection Regulation, also referred to as the GDPR has been applicable from 25th May 2018. GDPR added significant changes compared to the previous Data Protection directive, including operational changes within organisations. Your organisation could be fined severely if you do not follow this new directive. As a result, you need to be completely aware of these changes. The GDPR has been created with the main objective of enhancing data privacy for individuals within the European Union. It is the most notable change to data regulation in two decades and was issued by organizations such as the European Commission, Parliament, and Council of Ministers.

Who is affected by GDPR?
It's important to note that the GDPR applies to any organisation--no matter where they are based in the world--that handles personal data of EU citizens. This means companies located in America, Asia, Africa, and Australasia will all need to be compliant if they want to avoid hefty penalties. The GDPR affects two types of roles: the Controller and the Processor. The Controller: The person, agency or other body who determines the purposes and means of processing the personal data is classified as the "data controller." The Processor: A processor is a fourth person or organisation that processes personal data on behalf of the controller. In short, a data controller establishes how and why personal data is to be utilised, while the processor enacts the actual data processing. The controller is liable for making certain that the processor obeys with the data protection laws.
What is GDPR Compliance?
If your business wants to stay afloat, it is essential that you understand GDPR and take the steps necessary to ensure compliance. Regulations apply to any organisation that collects and/or processes EU citizen data, regardless of its location. Organisations will need to get permission to store and use data, as well as how they intend to utilise it. Any businesses that experience a breach in security will need to immediately contact the GDPR authorities. Companies must be able to provide electronic copies of personal records indicating when individuals have requested their information. The Right to be Forgotten - EU citizens will have the option of requesting that their information is erased and not shared with third parties. Privacy by design has always been a legal requirement, but now with GDPR it is especially important to make sure that security is built into products and processes from the beginning.
