Interview with Ireland’s Data Protection Commissioner, Helen Dixon
‘We see the GDPR as heralding a new era in the regulation and processing of personal data, and by that, we mean that the GDPR is bringing in amplified and expanded rights for individuals to control their destiny in terms of the data that’s collected and processed, and then correspondingly, it’s putting a new range of new obligations on organisations that collect and process personal data to ensure that they are meeting those rights.
And on top of that then, for data protection authorities like the Irish DPC, it’s giving us a whole new enforcement focus. We’re going to have a range of sanctions we can impose on organisations that contravene data protection legislation, and we’re also going to have the capability to impose very large administrative fines.’
An Article from DPPL on Practical Steps for GDPR Implementation, as Featured in Irish Tech News.
Although the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is mainly aimed at companies with more than 250 employees or high volumes of data processing, all companies will need to be compliant to a certain extent, and it is important to demonstrate that you have taken steps to address this as significant fines may apply, arising from audits, inspections or reported data breaches.
There is a wealth of information on the GDPR available, but in this article, I am giving you very practical steps to allow you to take the necessary action in your organisation to be ready for May 25th, 2018. I am also giving some examples of processes I have been involved with to give you get a real-life feel for the process.
