The countdown has begun. With the commencement of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) only a few months away, companies in Europe are busy trying to figure out all of its articles, recitals and fines and envision and prevent potential repercussions for non-compliance. However, European companies are not the only ones that need to be concerned. The regulation also applies to organizations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services or monitor and process personal data of subjects currently residing in the EU/EEA. Given that the May deadline is approaching fast, you are likely to have already taken the initial steps to ensure compliance such as mapping out a compliance plan, conducting a re-assessment of current policies and educating staff on the law’s importance.
This infographic is a short summary that offers a glance at GDPR’s major objectives and key provisions, outlines the rights granted to European citizens and touches on the technological and organizational aspects of GDPR compliance.
