General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Are you prepared?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force on 24 May 2016, and will be applicable across the European Union from 25 May 2018 onward.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect on 25 May 2018, transforming the European Privacy landscape. These new regulations will affect both public and private bodies which handle personal data. This includes the data of individual clients as well as data of the organisation’s own employees.

The regulation introduces new or enhanced privacy rights leading to greater obligations on affected organisations. The regulation has teeth. For example, non-compliant companies run the risk of fines up to €20m or 4% of the total global annual turnover, whichever is higher.

Deloitte Malta’s GDPR service team includes IT, Risk and Regulatory specialists and a range of bespoke tools to assist organisations with their specific needs. We can help organisations bring their internal processes, security and systems in line with the GDPR requirements.
