GDPR applies to all organisations that handle, store and process personal data of EU citizens regardless of size. There is no limitation on business size or geographical location, even businesses outside of Europe will need to comply if they are processing the personal data of any EU citizen.
GDPR will be enshrined into UK law on the 25th May 2018, all businesses, charities, government and schools have to comply with GDPR.
GDPR has global reach and applies to Data Controllers as well as Data Processors. Both are liable for any breach and could be fined up to 4% of global turnover or €20 million Euros, whichever is greater.
The biggest challenge in tackling GDPR is where to begin! The best approach is to simply ‘do something’ any proactive moves an organisation makes towards achieving compliancy will be viewed favourably by the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) and instantly negate the highest level of possible fines.
