Introduced across all member states of the European Union (EU), GDPR is a framework of data protection laws that spell out the manner in which organisations must inform individuals on the collection, use and storage of data, as well as the need to secure informed consent for these actions.
Coming into effect from May 25th 2018, GDPR is applicable to businesses in every industry and sector that has access to personal or sensitive information. This relates not only to a company’s clients, but also to those targeted through advertising or other data collection strategies, as well as employees.
In essence, GDPR is the new legal benchmark for the management of personal data that all businesses must adhere to. It is being administered in the UK by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and the body will have the authority to carry out criminal investigation into any organisation it believes to be failing to maintain its responsibilities in this area.
Ultimately, GDPR is designed to enhance transparency and provide new safeguards for individuals in how their information is managed by companies. To facilitate this process, a number of new rights have been introduced for individuals, including:
In addition, the issue of consent is one that organisations must address, as under GDPR companies may only make use of data that is provided with an individual’s “freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous” consent.
As a result, businesses must now be seeking approval for the use of all data. In cases where new contacts are being forged and new information is being collected, informed consent should also be requested and provided before this data can be used.
