The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be implemented in Ireland in May 2018 with the aim of protecting all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data driven world.
Unfortunately, many employers do not realise that 25th May 2018 is a deadline as opposed to a start date. It is important that all employers are ready and GDPR compliant by this date, with potential fines for breaches as high as €20 million or 4% of global turnover.
All employers process large amounts of personal data, especially when it comes to their customers and their employees. Consequently, the GDPR will impact most if not all areas of the business and the impact it will have cannot be overstated.
Organisations need to act now to prepare for the potential changes to their systems and procedures. The introduction of GDPR is just three months away, and by now all businesses should be taking action.
