The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has transformed how organisations around the world handle individual privacy. And that change presents an opportunity to drive more value from data.
Organisations have a choice. They can treat the EU GDPR as just another compliance issue. Or they can use its requirements to manage personal data in a way that will help make more informed decisions and create a better experience for customers and other stakeholders.
In either case, compliance is mandatory for all organisations that handle personal data of anyone in the EU. And the penalties for not complying with the GDPR are up to 20 million euros or four per cent of global annual turnover. Given the rewards for using data responsibly and intelligently, and the risks of not doing so, it’s obvious the regulation shouldn’t be treated as a tick-box exercise.
To ensure GDPR compliance, organisations will need to make changes to policies, processes and contracts, as well as in technical and organisational measures. In some instances, those changes could be complex and significant.
