In May 2018 the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into force. Under this legislation, EU domiciled organizations, or organizations that carry out most of their trade in the EU, will need to comply with new regulations regarding the usage and storage of customers' digital data. All companies under GDPR jurisdiction are required to appoint a Data Protection Officer to manage the data in the organization, and failure to comply with GDPR could result in a fine of up to €10 million, or 2% of annual turnover of the preceding financial year (whichever is greater).
The GDPR Handbook is a thorough introduction to these new regulations and their implications for any business. It covers in detail how companies of all sizes need to operate within the GDPR requirements, how to deal with information security and risk, and specifically addresses the key features and responsibilities of the Data Protection Officer. Using the latest research in market conditions, this book will help Data Protection Officers and organizations carry out Data Protection Impact Assessments, and create and enforce data protection policies, train staff, and manage data protection teams. The GDR Handbook is the ultimate, jargon free guide for your organization to interpret GDPR regulations into clear, actionable steps.
