European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR)
Data privacy, data protection, and cybersecurity are already key challenges for businesses around the world and the European General Data Protection Regulation, which goes into effect on May 25, 2018, will significantly raise the stakes for companies operating in the European Union. Entities that violate the regulation can be fined up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million, whichever is greater. GDPR rules apply equally to those controlling the data as well as those holding and/or processing the data (“in the cloud,” for example).
TerraLex member firms regularly help companies of all types and sizes prepare for the GDPR, understand the broad implications of the rule, and develop and implement compliance programs that meet EU standards.
