Description

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, which came into effect on 25 May 2018, 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 third 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;
  • International data transfers to ‘third countries’, including guidance on adequacy decisions and appropriate safeguards, the EU-US Privacy Shield, international organisations, limited transfers and Cloud providers;
  • 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.

Brexit and the GDPR

UK organisations handling personal data will still need to comply with the GDPR, regardless of Brexit. The DPA 2018 enacts the Regulation’s requirements in UK law and, after Brexit, the government plans to combine the provisions of the EU GDPR with the ‘applied GDPR’ (Part 2, Chapter 3 of the DPA 2018) to form a data processing regime that will work in a UK context. This will be called the ‘UK GDPR’.
