Time until GDPR enforcement, as from today: 117 days.

222gdpr02by Victor Bjorgan, January 27th 2018.-   The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was  approved by the EU Parliament on 14 April 2016. It entered in force 20 days after its publication in the EU Official Journal and will be directly applicable in all members states  next 25 May 2018 , at which time those organizations in non-compliance will face heavy fines.

So, the GDPR deadline is approaching. Before next May 25th, every organization that is offering good & services to the EU citizens must have to comply with it.

Non compliance may cost organizations severe penalties of €20 million or 4% of their global turn over(whichever higher).

GDPR’s scope and requirements are deep and complex, so prepare for it now to help ensure compliance. The regulation requires a programmatic approach to data protection – like “SOX for privacy” “ISO27001 or PCI-DSS for security” – so you’ll need a defensible program for compliance and to prove you’re acting appropriately.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.
