WHY INVESTING IN PRIVACY IS NECESSARY, BUT ALSO CREATING OPPORTUNITIES ...
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has a certain impact on each company and defines several minimum requirements which need to be fulfilled by each company. The potential fines in case of non-compliance with the GDPR can have a significant impact on your company and its future, and you also must consider the reputation risk.
Do you know the specific content of the GDPR and the transposed local privacy regulations within the EU member states where your organization is active? Do you like to know whether and to which extend the privacy regulation has an impact on your company? Are you aware that the fines can amount up to 2% (up to 10.000.000 EUR) or even 4% (up to 20.000.000 EUR) of the consolidated turnover in case of (serious) offense with the GDPR, which is in force since May 25th, 2018? And do you know that the updated Belgian privacy legislation, in force since September 2018, also foresees criminal fines in case of violation with this legislation?
As a manager or entrepreneur, you do not only wish for your company to stay compliant, but you also want that your efforts do have a permanent added value to your company. Therefore, the GDPR process creates an opportunity for your company to:
- obtain (better) control on the personal data that are processed by your company or by third parties on behalf of your organization;
- classify personal data (or critical company data) in an appropriate manner;
- maintain an overview of the type of personal data (or critical company data) that your company processes;
- further professionalise your internal functioning (e.g. the deployment of a retention policy).
Do you like to prepare your organization in a practical and pragmatic way for compliance with the European GDPR and the transposed local privacy regulations within the different EU member states, which also creates a lasting added value for your organization?
