Data protection across the EU will be regulated by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The Regulation will directly apply to controllers and processors established in the EU and, in some cases, to controllers and processors not established in the Union. All persons concerned must become fully compliant with the Regulation by 25 May 2018. By the date, the persons concerned must have all technical and organisational measures in place to comply with the requirements imposed by the Regulation (including, without limitation, stricter data security obligations and stricter consent rules) and must comply with the new rights of individuals whose data are processed (such as the right to be forgotten). Organisations found in breach of the Regulation can expect administrative fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover, whichever is greater.
