Flagging the issues – helping you prepare for GDPR
13th December 2017
GDPR is fast approaching and as your well aware will have a huge impact on the way businesses within the consumer sector collect and process data.
We have already been entrusted by clients across a spectrum of regulated and non-regulated sectors to work with them on their GDPR programmes, helping them to plan, budget and implement their compliance projects, as well as assessing their strategy and response to the change in risk profile.
Our global GDPR brochure provides an overview on what GDPR is and what you have to do to comply with the new law.
GDPR also has extraterritorial reach beyond the EU – including into the US — and it will shape market forces to reward those firms that meet GDPR standards and the expectations they engender. As a matter of law, you will have to comply with GDPR if you:
- target your offering of goods or services to individuals in the EU (even if it’s for free)
- monitor the behavior of individuals who are in the EU including for purposes such as behavioral advertising
- provide services to EU clients that involves using personal data, for example, by hosting EU personal data on US-based servers
- provide centralized IT systems or data storage functions for your enterprise which contain personal data about the employees and customers of any EU subsidiaries
