GDPR- ALL BUSINESSES NEED TO COMPLY
The General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 commonly referred to as ‘GDPR’ is one of the most significant pieces of legislation affecting the way that EU individuals’ personal data is collected, processed, stored or transferred within the EU. GDPR rules also applies to the transfer of EU individuals personal data outside of the EU and also applies to International companies outside of the EU that are processing the personal data of EU individuals.
FINES FOR GDPR NON-COMPLIANCE
Article 83 of the ‘GDPR’ details two tiers of administrative fines:
Busineses of any size must comply, and fines of this amount are enough to cripple any Business of any size!!!
It certainly pays to be 'GDPR' compliant.
THE COMMON BUSINESS DILEMMAS
NO TIME TO DESIGN AND IMPLEMENT GDPR COMPLIANCE
In our experience, most SMEs (small and medium size enterprises) and a small proportion of large businesses, often dont have the time to design and implement a GDPR compliant system within their business. Quite a lot of our SME customers are new to business (1-3 years of trading) and are focussed, rightly so, on establishing their business and breaking even. While both SMEs and large businesses alike would rather spend valuable time making a profit rather than dealing with the complexities of GDPR implementation.
In our experience, most SMEs don't have the budget to hire an Information Security manager for a typical (40K-50K) per year, a Data Protection Officer or a Manager of any other description responsible for personal data privacy.
In our experience, most SMEs don't have the competent or experienced resource within their business to design and implement a GDPR compliant system within their businesses. Sole Traders and Small Businesses, in particular, will not necessarily be experienced in the GDPR or the complexities that come with the design and implementation of a GDPR compliant system within their businesses.
