GDPR requirements apply to each member state of the European Union, aiming to create more consistent protection of consumer and personal data across EU nations. Critical elements of the GDPR privacy and data protection requirements include:
- Requiring the consent of subjects for data processing
- Anonymizing collected data to protect privacy
- Providing data breach notifications
- Safely handling the transfer of data across borders
- Requiring individual companies to appoint a data protection officer to oversee compliance
GDPR mandates a baseline set of standards for companies that handle EU citizens’ data to safeguard the processing and movement of citizens’ data.
According to the Ponemon Institute, compliance with GDPR requirements is considered extremely difficult. More than 90% of the respondents to Ponemon’s research suggest technical compliance is the most difficult set of regulatory requirements for to achieve.
