The countdown has started –
a quick quiz on the GDPR

Legal requirements | 21. DEC 2017

There is not long left before May 25, 2018. That is when the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect. The purpose of the GDPR is to impose rules governing the protection of natural persons when personal information is processed and the free movement of such data.

Threat of fines ensures implementation cannot be postponed

The Regulation is attracting a lot of attention at the moment, a significant amount of which emanates from the article it contains on potential fines for non-compliance. Penalties of up to €20 million or 4% of the total annual global turnover achieved in the previous financial year will ensure that companies literally cannot afford to ignore the new rulings.
