Let’s start with what is GDPR ?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. When the GDPR takes effect, it will replace the data protection directive (officially Directive 95/46/EC) of 1995. The regulation was adopted on 27 April 2016. It becomes enforceable from 25 May 2018 after a two-year transition period and, unlike a directive, it does not require national governments to pass any enabling legislation, and is thus directly binding and applicable.
Who needs to be GDPR compliant ?
All and any company that interacts with EU People.
What do I need to do ?
1. You need to protect by any means possible any personal data that you have
2. You need to know what data you have
3. Where is the data stored
4. What you are allowed to use it for
5. Is the old data that you have before the GDPR rule Valid
and a couple of other things depending on the vertical your business is on.
At this moment you might say that you have no personal data, but think about this: All companies have at least a payroll service and they have access to personal data.
