ENTRY INTO FORCE OF THE EUROPEAN GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)
On May 25, 2018, the General European Data Protection Regulation (RGPD) will enter into force, regulating the collection, storage and processing of personal data. This regulation is mandatory for companies, professionals and individuals who manage data from third parties, whether customers, employees, suppliers, etc..
Some of the main novelties introduced by these regulations are that tacit consent is not permitted in obtaining data and that, at the time of collection, the purpose for which they will be used must be expressly indicated. Likewise, the figure of the Data Protection Delegate is also introduced.
Therefore, it would be a good idea to check whether your protocols meet the new requirements. It is possible that if your company was already complying with the previous regulations, only a few adaptations may be necessary, without having to make a full data protection implementation, although the specific case would have to be assessed.
If you have an interest in carrying out an audit and proposals on actions to be implemented, we would appreciate it if you indicated it as soon as possible in order to be able to comply with this regulation before May 25, 2018.
