GDPR Is Now 1-Year Old

GDPR came into force a year ago and it is a good time for organisations to carry out a review of their compliance with the new regulation.

Clayden Law is an Oxford law company which has completed a thorough review of GDPR breaches and sanctions. Although GDPR enforcement actionhas been relatively low so far, this is not likely to continue and national watchdogs are using new tools to monitor the situation.

The UK had over 14 thousand breaches notified in the year between May 2018 and 2019 making the UK one of the top three countries notifying breaches. Some of the lowest to notify were Iceland, Cyprus and Liechtenstein.

The highest GDPR fine so far has been the €50 million fine imposed by the French data authority, CNIL, in relation to Google’s use of personal data for the purposes of personalising advertisements. 

Despite the increase in the number of disclosed breaches and taking into account the maximum fines regulators now have the power to impose, the number of fines and their value (excluding the €50 million fine against Google) have been low so far, lower than many expected but this is probably because regulators in some countries are still building their monitoring techniques.

Does your company have everything in place to meet the GDPR’s requirements when a data breach happens? 

With new guidance from the regulators and enforcement action to date, it’s a good time for organisations to audit their GDPR compliance. 

Contact Cyber Security Intelligence for a free assessment and training recommendations.

Under the GDPR you must be able to demonstrate your compliance and detailed records may help you mitigate enforcement action.

GDPR Training
All business and organisations need a refresher GDPR training.  Data protection experts emphasise that staff training is an essential part of GDPR compliance. If you were to experience a data breach, having a documented staff training may be used as evidence to prove that you had taken the appropriate steps to prevent a data breach.
