GDPR compliance with SecureAge Technology
What is GDPR?
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in 2018 and served to update and standardise Data protection legislation for all types of organisations across the European Union (EU). It replaces the 1995 privacy laws which were built for a pre-Facebook and Google era.
What companies need to know
about GDPR compliant software
GDPR applies to the European Economic Area
This includes Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. It impacts every entity that holds or uses European personal Data both inside and outside of Europe.
GDPR is based on the principle of good Data governance
To achieve Data privacy, organisations require ‘privacy by design’, ‘privacy by default’, and ‘accountability.’ Without undue delay and, where feasible, this needs to be shown no later than 72 hours after having become aware of a Data breach.
GDPR will result in stricter fines on companies
mismanaging personal Data
Any person who has suffered damage as a result of an infringement (material or immaterial) will have the right to receive compensation from the controller or processor for the damage suffered.
GDPR mandates that organisations reassess
their Data processing controls
The mandate includes large enterprises, small & medium business (SMBs), and even sole proprietors. All organisations are required to implement a plan to be compliant.
