The Goals of GDPR

The GDPR defines how personal data should be collected, processed and stored. The key goals of the GDPR are:

  • Give citizens great control over their personal data

  • Unify data protection laws in all European countries, which also simplifies the regulatory environment for international business

  • Update data protection laws to incorporate Internet, mobile, social media and other current and emerging technologies

The regulation is in full effect on May 25, 2018. Your organization may be faced with significant penalties for failure to comply with the GDPR.

GDPR: What Matters and How to Address It


The Information Commissioners Office has supervisory authority to impose fines and even stop an organization from processing personal data.

Organizations that fail to comply with the GDPR are subject to:

  • Fine up to €20million or 4% of global turnover, whichever is greater
