With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act of 2018 in full effect, it’s crucial for businesses to take all the necessary steps to protect company and customer data.

Trying to understand all the data protection regulations and issues on your own can be an intimidating task, and there is no room for error under GDPR. With regulation of personal data constantly adapting and updating, your organisation should take every necessary precaution to stay compliant with tighter rules and higher fines.

What are the fines for non-compliance under the GDPR?

There are two tiers of administrative fines under the GDPR:

  • Lower level GDPR penalties: Fines of up to €10 million or 2% of annual global turnover, whichever is greater, can be issued for low-level infringements.
  • High-level GDPR penalties: Fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover, whichever is greater, can be issued for more serious infringements.

GDPR fines are discretionary and are usually imposed on a case-by-case basis. You can receive a reduced fine by cooperating and taking immediate steps to resolve the situation.

What can I do now to ensure GDPR compliance?

  1. Update the privacy policy on your business website.
  2. Carry out a GDPR audit of the information your company currently holds about staff and customers, and how long you should retain the data for. These audits should be carried out as an ongoing process.
  3. Conduct GDPR training and awareness courses for staff.
  4. Update any contracts with suppliers and thirds parties to ensure data protection terms and conditions are applied.
  5. Review marketing processes and HR processes to cleanse data and review where consent is needed.
  6. Consult a data protection advisor to adapt to modern GDPR regulations.
