The new GDPR was passed in May 2016 and all organisations must be able to evidence full compliance with its requirements by May 2018.

The new accountability principle in Article 5 (2) requires you to ‘demonstrate that you comply with the principles’ and states explicitly that this is your responsibility. The wording specific and for many organisations this will require a major overhaul of their procedures which may fall short of the GDPR requirements.

There is little time to get all of this in place – you need to reveiw existing policies and procedures, conduct a Data Protection Impact Assessment across all areas of your business and train all staff on what this means in practical terms for them.

The penalty for getting this wrong are fines of up to £20 million or 4% of turnover.

The new legislation gives citizens far greater control over their personal data and makes organisations responsible for keeping that data secure.
