GDPR-text

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect on the 25th of May 2018. As this is considered the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years, Akkade is here to make sure your organization is ready.

Many of the GDPR’s main concepts and principles are much the same as those in the current Data Protection Act (DPA), so if you are complying properly with the current law then most of your approach to compliance will remain valid under the GDPR and can be the starting point to build from. However, there are new elements and significant enhancements, so you will have to do some things for the first time and some things differently.

It is essential to start planning your approach to GDPR compliance as early as you can and to gain ‘buy in’ from key people in your organisation. You may need, for example, to put new procedures in place to deal with the GDPR’s new transparency and individuals’ rights provisions. In a large or complex business this could have significant budgetary, IT, personnel, governance and communications implications.


Note that some parts of the GDPR will have more of an impact on some organizations than on others (for example the provisions relating to profiling or children’s data), so it would be useful to map out which parts of the GDPR will have the greatest impact on your business model and give those areas due prominence in your planning process.
