GDPR COMPLIANCE PROGRAM

WHAT IS GDPR?

In 2016, the European Union (EU) adopted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  It is a replacement of the 1995 Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC). Because GDPR is a regulation and not a directive, it is not open to interpretation by the member states and will be implemented uniformly by supervisory authorities across the EU.

The GDPR took effect May 25, 2018.

The GDPR applies to processing carried out by organizations operating within the EU.  It also applies to organizations outside the EU that offer goods or services to individuals in the EU.

There is currently no statutory GDPR compliance certification; a business entity cannot be certified as GDPR compliant. Business entities are expected to put into place comprehensive governance measures that should minimize the risk of breaches and provide the protection of personal data.

GPDR compliance can be achieved through the implementation of appropriate technical and administrative controls.
