EU General Data Protection Regulation what changes?

GDPR dominates the headlines this spring, as its sanctions take effect starting May 2018.
What does it mean for SMB?With the adoption of Art. 5 EU-GDPR (Principles relating to processing of personal data), personal data must be processed and collected for explicit and specified purposes, and can not be used otherwise. Such requirements impose a need for an additional process, which ensures that data erasure takes place without any undue delay, in order to comply with new data protection regulation, (Art. 17 EU-GDPR „Right to be forgotten“) Data subjects, i.e. individuals providing the personal data, have the following rights according to GDPR:

Information provision duty and private data disclosure

Art 13. EU-GDPR Information to be provided where personal data are collected from the data subject.

Art. 14. EU-GDPR Information to be provided where the personal data have not been obtained from the data subject.

Art. 15 EU-GDPR Right of access by the data subject

EU-GDPR Rectification and erasure

Art. 16 EU-GDPR Right to rectification

Art. 17 EU-GDPR Right to erasure („right to be forgotten“)

Art. 18 EU-GDPR Right to restriction of processing

Art. 19 EU-GDPR Notification obligation regarding rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing

Art. 20 EU-GDPR Right to data portability

Right to object and automated individual decision-making according to EU-GDPR 2018

Art. 21 EU-GDPR right to object

Art. 22 EU-GDPR Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

In summary, it can be stated that violations of GDPR can result in significant sanctions for companies and private entrepreneurs (up to 4% of worldwide turnover). We recommend our customers to review their company’s past control measures to prevent heavy financial loss and image damage.
