From 25 May 2018, businesses have been deemed to comply with the GDPR legislation. However, the first fine relating to GDPR legislation was imposed earlier this year. This is why we are going to tell you in this blog post how Adfinity can help you ensure compliance with the GDPR.
What is the GDPR?
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a European regulation concerning the management of personal data by private companies and public authorities. This privacy legislation applies to all organizations that process confidential data, both customer data and employee data. The GDPR legislation supplements the privacy laws that are already in force. Because of the increasing digitization, it took effect in May 2016. Businesses were granted a deadline of 25 May 2018 to bring their data management in order for this legislation.
Will the GDPR still be a hot topic in 2020?
For many businesses, the guidelines provided by the GDPR are not always clear, and they are not always handled with due care. Now that the first sanctions have been imposed, it becomes ever more important to handle confidential data correctly. More, but also more rigorous, checks are anticipated in 2020.
