Introduction to the EU Data Protection Regulation
来源: | 作者:pro0ef5e0 | 发布时间: 2017-01-05 | 691 次浏览 | 分享到:

While the result of the referendum in June this year determined that the UK will leave its membership of the EU, the Government has confirmed that it will nevertheless implement the EU General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation), which comes into force from 25 May 2018.

 

Although this might seem long time away, the reality is that organisations have less than 18 months to get their houses in order and ready for the Regulation. The Regulation represents the most significant reform of Data Protection law in over 25 years.  If organisations do not at least meet the requirements of the existing Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) now, then the higher standards contained within the Regulation will present an insurmountable compliance challenge when the time comes.  Moreover, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the regulator of Data Protection in the UK, will enjoy significantly enhanced enforcement powers, such as the power to issue fines against organisations that do not comply with the Regulation of up to €20m or 4% of their global turnover, whichever is higher.
