GDPR: An Overview
Adopted in 2016 and enforced in May 2018, The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a set of legislations that detail how companies should securely process the personal data of clients and subjects.
GDPR provides a framework of responsibilities and requirements for organizations to secure the privacy and protection of personal data, as well as dictates how organizations can safely provide data holders with certain rights. This also includes clearly showcasing how client data is used and stored through appropriate data accounting and management.
These regulations can carry with them heavy fines for any organizations that do not adhere to these data handling responsibilities and measures. Some of these required measures pertain to:
- Data transfers
- Data Protection Impact Assessment
- Personal data breaches
- Limitation of data, purpose and storage
- Lawful, fair and transparent data processing
- Privacy by design
The documentation covering GDPR can be dense and intimidating at first, but what is important to know is how organizations, like ELEARNINGFORCE, are putting these mandated practices and processes into action.
