I2V Business Automation for GDPR
The new legal framework, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced in May 2018 to ensure the EU’s data protection policies are uniform across all member countries.
If data processors breach their statutory data security obligations, set out under Article 32, which requires them to “implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk” of their personal data processing, then they could be fined is up to €10m or 2% of global annual turnover.
At Insight 2 Value we believe this absolutely represents a ‘challenging business moment’ – a critical moment in time – the catalyst that sets in motion a series of events and actions involving a network of people, systems and tasks where control and auditability of the process is critical.
The words of the UK Information Commissioner’s Office, the Government body responsible for Data Protection in the UK are telling –
“The most significant addition is the accountability principle. The GDPR requires you to show how you comply with the principles – for example by documenting the decisions you take about a processing activity”
The UK Payment Cards Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) have calculated that If UK data breaches remain at 2015 levels, the fines paid to the European regulator could see a near 90-fold increase, from £1.4bn in 2015 to £122bn. Companies, therefore, need to be certain that they are complying with GDPR across their business.
