The GDPR differs Significantly from EC Data Protection Directive 95/ 46

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which has been codified as Regulation (EU) 2016/679, is a very powerful law regarding the protection of data of the half billion people who live in the European Union (EU). Having come into effect as a result of the European Commission having adapted the proposal for its creation on January 25, 2012; it will replace Directive 95/46/EC, the data protection directive that has been in use in the EU since 1995.

European 023456106501

The GDPR becomes a full-fledged law and is enforceable from 25 May 2018. This is after it goes through a two-year transition period from its adaption date of 27 April 2016.

The GDPR doesn’t require members to endorse it

Just how powerful is this regulation? Well, an idea of its overarching potency can be understood from the fact that it becomes law and will be binding from the date of its enforcement without requiring legislative support from any of the EU members.

Rationale for the creation of the GDPR

The GDPR has been created for the purpose of harmonizing and strengthening all the legislative and secretarial bodies of the EU, namely the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission, and to tighten the various fragmented elements concerning data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). The GDPR also governs the export of personal data to regions beyond the EU.

It is being created to serve two important purposes:

  • Equipping EU citizens the power to control their personal data
  • Smoothening the regulatory environment and synchronizing and unifying all regulations concerning data protection regulations across the EU, and lubricating the process of doing global business within the EU.

What benefits does the new legislation offer?

The GDPR has been legislated to offer many advantages:

  • Within the company, Personally Identifiable Information (PII) will be processed with greater ease and clarity
  • The security controls in place till now will be unified and strengthened across all the EU members
  • Its stronger safeguards for data protection inspire greater customer confidence
  • The process of doing business in the EU is now a lot more simplified

What happens when companies fail to comply with the GDPR rules?

The EU mandates strict penalties for companies that fail to comply with the GDPR provisions on data protection provisions on data protection:

  • They have to pay penalties of between two and four percent of their worldwide revenues
  • Fines can go up € 20 million
  • The EU laws can initiate serious and expensive lawsuits
  • All these mean that companies obviously lose face

GDPR 1235416484

These are the reasons for which companies that want to do business in the EU need to have thorough knowledge of this law and the ways in which it applies to them. This is the means to avert the expensive consequences that follow from noncompliance.
