GDPR challenges

Managing personal data fairly, lawfully and transparently has been a legal requirement in the UK since the Data Protection Act of 1998, GDPR expands on the main principles and brings additional requirements like demonstrating board accountability and keeping data processing documentation. Personal data is no longer a company’s asset but a risk that needs proper management. Although experts have described this legislation as ambitious, exceptionally complex and harsh, applying the corrects controls will help your business grow and build customer relationships based on trust. Each business will have changes to make in their policy, processes and business contracts, as well as in technical and organisational compliance. In many cases, the required changes could be complex and significant. Failure to comply could result in businesses being fined up to 20 million euros or 4% of annual global turnover – whichever is higher.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are GDPR fines insurable?

In the UK, no. Of the 30 countries reviewed by Aon and DLA Piper, it turns out such fines are insurable in only two jurisdictions – Finland and Norway. In most countries, the answer seems an outright no, while eight countries are labelled as “unclear”.

Can GDPR be applied retrospectively?

You need to look carefully at all of your existing data processing activities to ensure you are compliant. Let’s say you use customer data for marketing purposes. Do you have specific consent for this? Is that consent clear, prominent, opt-in, documented and easily withdrawn? If not, you must improve your existing mechanisms to accomodate the GDPR.

How GDPR works

GDPR is designed to give individuals better control over their personal data and establish one single set of data protection rules across Europe.
Organisations outside the EU are subject to this regulation when they collect data concerning any EU citizen.
