The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) – Now in place

With effect from today, 25th May 2018, the much talked about GDPR is now in place and applies to all organisations within the EU.

GDPR imposes new obligations and stricter requirements in relation to individual’s personal data and if your organisation processes personal data of people in the EU, or is a data controller or processor established in the EU, GDPR will apply.

Further details on the GDPR can be found on the website of the Data Protection Commission, and it is important you familiarise yourself on your organisations obligations under the regulations as GDPR significantly increases fines for non-compliance (the higher of a maximum of €20 million or 4% of global turnover).

If you have any queries please call Bernadette or Anna on +353 (0) 91 704818.
