GDPR Preparation & Compliance Overview

April 11th, 2018

GDPR: Are you ready?

The GDPR will take effect on May 25, 2018.  The GDPR clearly applies to U.S. companies doing business in Europe or offering goods and services online that EU residents can purchase.

What is the GDPR? The GDPR unifies European data and privacy protection laws as to companies that collect or process the personally identifiable information (“PII” or, as the GDPR calls it, “personal data”) of European residents (not just citizens).

Who must comply? The GDPR applies to any company that has personal information of EU residents or citizens or that conducts business in the EU, regardless of its home country.

What is the risk of non-compliance? The GDPR mandates documented compliance. The regulations provide for substantial fines of up to €20 million or 4% of global revenues for noncompliance. Willful non-compliance is most heavily fined under this tiered system.
