In a nutshell, GDPR is about protecting personal information. As we all know, a lot of personal information has been collected illegally by businesses being hacked. Now, as part of this new government legislation, if your data is breached you must report it within 72 hours. Or, face a fine of 4% of your revenue.

Personal information is defined as – Name, address, phone number, bank/credit cards, email address and IP address.

Who does it affect? – Businesses based in the EU that collect or hold personal data on EU citizens. No matter where they reside.

How does it affect your business? – How you Collect, store and record personal data and all processing of that data.

Step you can take to mitigate risk

  • Look at where your data is stored
  • Time you store personal data and is it still relevant? If not, you must delete it. If the individual asks you to delete it you must.
  • Governance surrounding accessing of any personal data
  • Monitoring who has access to that data
