What You Need to Know About GDPR
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) refers to legislation enacted jointly by the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union (EU)and the European Commission. The goal of this regulation is to increase data security as well as strengthen and unify data protection protocols for all people living in or doing business in EU countries. Unlike previous data protection legislation, this regulation applies to any business with a presence in the EU, not just companies that are based in the EU. GDPR applies even if the data processing company, such as a cloud storage company, is based in an EU country. GDPR becomes effective on May 28, 2018.
The goal of GDPR is to give EU residents back a large measure of control over their sensitive, personal information and how that information is being used. It also seeks to unify how each country within the EU is regulating the use of personal information and thus make it easier for companies who do business in multiple EU countries to ensure compliance.
GDPR Applies to US Multinationals
For companies collecting data from EU citizens (whether or not they are based in the EU), GDPR means ramping up their company’s data collection systems, improving accountability, and in most cases, hiring or promoting a data control officer, whose primary responsibility is ensuring that the company’s proper data collection protocols are followed. Ignorance of the provisions of the regulation is not a valid excuse under GDPR, and companies face strict financial penalties for noncompliance.
GDPR Compliance Requirements
GDPR defines personal data as “any information relating to an individual, whether it relates to his or her private, professional or public life. It can be anything from a name, a home address, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer’s IP address.” The regulation applies only to data collection for private sector enterprises and some court of government agencies. It does not attempt to regulate national security or law enforcement agencies.
The key provisions of GDPR include:
- Every company or entity is required have a data control officer, who accepts responsibility for acquiring, storing, deleting and processing personal data. Data security must be among this person’s primary duties.
- Under the regulation, personal data may only be collected if the subject (or his or her legal representative) has given consent.
- Such data can only be acquired when necessary to complete a contract to which the subject is party, when necessary to meet legal requirements, when necessary to protect the vital interests of the party, when necessary to perform the legitimate interests of the company as long as the rights of the party are not compromised, and when necessary for carrying out a task in the public interest.
- Consent to data collection for children must be given by the child’s parent or guardian, and the company must be able to show a record of this consent.
- Companies must encrypt the data they collect in such a way that it cannot be readily tied to the subject should the data be compromised
- Data control officers must notify the GDPR Supervisory Authority in a timely manner in the event of a data breach.
- Companies must submit to periodic random data audits to ensure that they are in compliance.
