What is GDPR?

The most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years, GDPR is a regulation issued by the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers of the European Union with the goal of improving data protection for individuals within the European Union.

The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe will be directly applicable starting on May 25, 2018. When GDPR comes in to effect, the regulation will overhaul the way companies approach their data and includes big fines for those that do not comply.

GDPR is the biggest change to data protection regulations in two decades and is a major challenge for many businesses. The new regulations introduce a much greater territorial reach in terms of liable businesses and harsher fines for non-compliance, so GDPR training is essential.

Despite the added risk, 54% of organisations have not started preparing for the GDPR. A survey from analyst firm Gartner showed that around half of those affected by the legislation – whether in the EU or outside – will not be in full compliance when the regulations take effect.

At a time of increased cyber attacks and a resulting focus on data privacy, the message is clear: it is essential the EU has a tough data protection stance that will enable it to compete and trade with other nations and that means becoming GDPR compliant.

The new EU data protection regulation has left many companies unclear about their obligations in order to become compliant with GDPR, so what is GDPR and how can you make sure that your company is compliant?

MPI’s GDPR Practitioner Courses will train you how to comply with GDPR, and help to get your organisation ready.
