E.U. Regulation on the Protection of Personal Data

The new European Regulation will enter into force on May 24, 2018, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation " GDPR " which adopted in April 2016 (Regulation 2016/679 of the EU), for the protection of natural persons in the processing of personal data and the free movement of such data.

As it is an EU Regulation, it has direct effect and will be binding and applicable to all Member States. This Regulation will oblige all Companies / Organizations handling personal data of European Citizens to fully comply with its requirements. Each Company / Organization should act in accordance with the provisions of the Regulation. The Regulation provides for severe fines / penalties of up to € 20 million or 4% of annual global turnover.

The new Regulation is a challenge for Companies / Organisations that process personal data, as they should review their current Data Protection and Privacy Programs, identify the gaps and take all necessary measures to meet compliance with GDPR.

Due to the fact, that the May 2018 deadline is at hand, Companies / Organisations should act promptly in order to comply with the requirements of the Regulation. This means that they should implement appropriate technical and organisational measures, have in place the appropriate system agreements, procedures and policies, as well as the documentation required for proving their compliance with GDPR, as well as ensure that their staff understands the GDPR obligations.
