What is GDPR?
As an EU Regulation, it will not generally require separate transposition into Irish law. Therefore, organisations involved in the control of data or the processing of data of any sort need to be aware that they will be impacted by the GDPR regulation.
How might GDPR impact upon your business?
Irrespective of where their business is located, any entity that uses or holds personal data on those within the EU will be captured by the new regulation. This means that if your company is located in the US but has customers in the EU you will need to be GDPR compliant.
The GDPR is the latest step in the ongoing global recognition of the value and importance of personal information. The increase of cyber theft on personal data continually exposes consumers and companies to significant risks. Technological advancements coupled with concerns regarding the misuse of personal data has resulted in the passing of this new law.
Organisations that act quickly will be those that thrive in the evolving regulatory environment.
