    Invoice Notice
    EU GDPR Compliance

    Attention: Valued Customer

     

    The new general data protection regulation (GDPR) is officially in effect, are you in compliance?

    No matter your answer, don’t worry, Sioure Enterprise has you covered.

    What is the EU GDPR

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR is a regulation with the intention to unify and bolster data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU) by the European Commission. It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The main focus of the GDPR, is to allow EU citizens and residents to regain control over their personal data and to make the regulatory environment less complex for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

    Does This apply To me?

    Arguably the biggest change to the regulatory landscape of data privacy comes with the extended jurisdiction of the GDPR, as it applies to all companies processing the personal data of data subjects residing in the Union, regardless of the company’s location. Previously, territorial applicability of the directive was ambiguous and referred to data process 'in context of an establishment'. This topic has arisen in a number of high profile court cases. GDPR makes its applicability very clear - it will apply to the processing of personal data by controllers and processors in the EU, regardless of whether the processing takes place in the EU or not. The GDPR will also apply to the processing of personal data of data subjects in the EU by a controller or processor not established in the EU, where the activities relate to: offering goods or services to EU citizens (irrespective of whether payment is required) and the monitoring of behaviour that takes place within the EU. Non-Eu businesses processing the data of EU citizens will also have to appoint a representative in the EU.

    Penalties

    Under GDPR organizations in breach of GDPR can be fined up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 Million (whichever is greater). This is the maximum fine that can be imposed for the most serious infringements e.g.not having sufficient customer consent to process data or violating the core of Privacy by Design concepts. There is a tiered approach to fines e.g. a company can be fined 2% for not having their records in order (article 28), not notifying the supervising authority and data subject about a breach or not conducting impact assessment. It is important to note that these rules apply to both controllers and processors -- meaning 'clouds' will not be exempt from GDPR enforcement.
