As you may know, the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be in full effect on May 25, 2018. As we discussed in a previous article, the aims of this regulation are to protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of natural persons and to also ensure their right to protection of personal data as well as the free movement of said data.
Companies have to work through a large number of complicated steps in order to become fully compliant with the new EU-GDPR. Significant additional expense is to be expected on the part of the organizations. According to a current Ponemon study, more than one third of surveyed German companies said they had not yet taken any steps towards ensuring GDPR compliance.2 Equally concerning is the fact that only 38 percent of global businesses have a specific implementation plan.3 This is due among other things to the imprecise wording of the data protection regulation, which is causing confusion and problems in implementation. Some degree of legal uncertainty is therefore to be expected in the early stages.
The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR EU (Regulation EU 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of Council of 27 April 2016) is a regulation of the European Union introduced to improve and unify personal data protection of individuals within the European Union. It enters into application in May 2018.
