Laura Linkomies

Privacy Laws and Business Report, September 2017


The Regulation, which came into force on 25 May 2018, applies to all data controllers and processors that handle EU residents’ personal information.

All organisations – wherever they are in the world – that process the personal data of EU residents must comply with the Regulation. Failure to do so could result in fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover – whichever is greater.

This book provides a detailed commentary on the GDPR, explains the changes you need to make to your data protection and information security regimes, and tells you exactly what you need to do to avoid severe financial penalties.
