What does 'GDPR' stand for?

'GDPR' stands for 'General Data Protection Regulation'.

What is the GDPR?

'GDPR' stands for the 'General Data Protection Regulation'. It is an EU regulation that addresses the transfer and storage of data in and outside the European Union and the European Economic Area.

Does the GDPR apply to every business?

The GDPR applies to any organization in or outside the EU that stores or transfers data from within the EU. It also applies to individuals, unless they utilize data solely for 'domestic or personal activity'.

In short, any business from a self-employed trader to an international conglomerate can find GDPR applies to them.

What is the value of GDPR training?

With the GDPR applying to all organizations which utilize EU data, qualified data protection officers are in extremely high demand. According to Glassdoor, data protection officers in the UK can earn between £29,000 and over £89,000, while in the US they can earn up to $150,000 according to Medium.

What are the penalties for failing to be GDPR-compliant?

The fines for failing to be GDPR compliant depend on which articles are breached. The first choice is up to €10 million, or 2% annual global turnover, while the second is up to €20 million, or 4% annual global turnover. In both cases, the fee will be whichever option is higher.

Why is the GDPR so important?

The GDPR is important in two respects: firstly, it protects the data rights of EU citizens. Secondly, it clarifies exactly what steps organizations are required to take in order to safeguard these rights and minimize the possibility of data breaches.

How does the GDPR work?

The GDPR works by clarifying what organizations must do in order to protect customer data, setting strict standards for accountability and compliance. It also imposes harsh fines on businesses which fail to take the necessary steps.

Who can benefit from studying the GDPR?

All organizations which work with data from EU citizens can benefit from studying the GDPR. GDPR training can also offer help data protection officers and IT managers to take on more responsibilities and earn higher-paying roles.

What other frameworks can complement GDPR?

The GDPR is highly compatible with COBIT 2019, a framework dedicated to aligning business and IT goals. It can also be complemented by frameworks like ITIL 4, which prioritize compliance.
