Overview

Understand your GDPR obligations and prioritise the steps you need to take to comply

The GDPR gives individuals significant rights over how their personal information is collected and processed, and places a range of obligations on organisations to be more accountable for data protection.

The Regulation applies to all data controllers and processors that handle EU residents’ personal information. It supersedes the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive and all EU member states’ national laws that are based on it – including the UK’s DPA (Data Protection Act) 1998.

Failure to comply with the Regulation could result in fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover – whichever is greater. This guide is a perfect companion for anyone managing a GDPR compliance project. It provides a detailed commentary on the Regulation, explains the changes you need to make to your data protection and information security regimes, and tells you exactly what you need to do to avoid severe financial penalties.


Clear and comprehensive guidance to simplify your GDPR compliance project

Now in its fourth edition, EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – An Implementation and Compliance Guide provides clear and comprehensive guidance on the GDPR. It explains the Regulation and sets out the obligations of data processors and controllers in terms you can understand.

Topics covered include:

  • The DPO (data protection officer) role, including whether you need one and what they should do;
  • Risk management and DPIAs (data protection impact assessments), including how, when and why to conduct one;
  • Data subjects’ rights, including consent and the withdrawal of consent, DSARs (data subject access requests) and how to handle them, and data controllers and processors’ obligations;
  • Managing personal data internationally, including updated guidance following the Schrems II ruling;
  • How to adjust your data protection processes to comply with the GDPR, and the best way of demonstrating that compliance; and
  • A full index of the Regulation to help you find the articles and stipulations relevant to your organisation.

“This helps make the GDPR more accessible when reviewing how to apply it to your organisation. Complementary to the online training sessions to enhance confidence on the subject in the workplace”

- Emma

 

“Its practical approach to various aspects of the GDPR will be of value to DP practitioners in organisations of all sizes”

- Laura Linkomies, Privacy Laws and Business Report, September 2017

 

Supplemental material

While most of the EU GDPR’s requirements are broadly unchanged in the UK GDPR, the context is quite different and will have knock-on effects. You may need to update contracts regarding EU–UK data transfers, incorporate standard contractual clauses into existing agreements, and update your policies, processes and procedural documentation as a result of these changes.

Supplements that set out specific extra or amended information are now available for the bestselling titles EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – An implementation and compliance guide, fourth edition and EU GDPR – An international guide to compliance, which focus on identifying the key changes and context relating to the UK GDPR. As such, the information contained within the supplements is primarily of interest to organisations in the UK, organisations that process the personal data of UK residents, and organisations that process personal data on behalf of organisations in the UK.

Brexit and the GDPR

The application of the GDPR in the UK is slightly more problematic as the nation voted to leave the EU and did so after the GDPR came into law. The GDPR has been passed into law in its entirety in the UK under the Data Protection Act 2018, so, in general terms, the compliance activities for UK organisations will remain largely unchanged. One of the key details of the UK’s final departure, however, may have a significant impact: whether the UK will be awarded an adequacy decision from the European Commission.
