A clear, concise primer on the GDPR

The GDPR aims to unify data protection and ease the flow of personal data across the EU. It applies to every organisation in the world that handles EU residents’ personal data.

While the GDPR is not law in countries outside the EU, it is effectively part of the legislative environment for organisations that do business with the EU. This is enforced through a combination of international trade law and business pressure – after all, a partner in the EU is unlikely to want to risk engaging with a company in the US, Australia or Singapore (or anywhere else) that will put them at risk.

EU GDPR – An international guide to compliance is the ideal resource for anyone wanting a clear primer on the principles of data protection and their obligations under the GDPR.

Your essential guide to understanding the GDPR

A concise pocket guide, it will help you understand:

  • The terms and definitions used in the GDPR, including explanations;
  • The key requirements of the GDPR, including:
    • Which fines apply to which Articles;
    • The principles that should be applied to any collection and processing of personal data;
    • The Regulation’s applicability;
    • Data subjects’ rights;
    • Data protection impact assessments;
    • The data protection officer role and whether you need one;
    • Data breaches, and notifying supervisory authorities and data subjects; and
    • Obligations for international data transfers.
  • How to comply with the Regulation, including:
    • Understanding your data, and where and how it is used (e.g. Cloud suppliers, physical records);
    • The documentation you must maintain (such as statements of the information you collect and process, records of data subject consent, processes for protecting personal data); and
    • The “appropriate technical and organisational measures” you need to take to ensure compliance with the Regulation.
  • A full index of the Regulation, enabling you to find relevant Articles quickly and easily.

A great introduction to the GDPR. Worth a read if you’re wanting to find out more about the topic, or if you’re going to take the GDPR foundation exam.
