What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a sweeping data privacy law in the EU and UK that affects any business that collects private data on EU and UK citizens.
It carries provisions that require businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. The GDPR also regulates the exportation of personal data outside the EU.
Why is GDPR essential?
The intent behind GDPR compliance is to protect people against data breaches. Following the regulations has become a mandate, owing to the growing public concerns over data collection, storage, and dissipation.
A GDPR checklist ensures that as an organization data governance is focused centrally. GDPR represents one of the most comprehensive reforms to data regulation in recent times.
What falls under the purview of GDPR Compliance?
The GDPR defines three different roles related to personal data(data which is not available in the public domain):
- Personal Data subject: Owner of personal data.
- Personal Data controller: The individual or organization determines what personal data to collect and how it will be used.
- Personal Data processors: The individual or organization processing personal data for the controller.
The regulation covers the protection of the following data:
1. Personal data (which is not available in the public domain) that relates to an identified or identifiable ‘individual’, for example;
*name, address, and/or ID numbers.
2. Web data such as location, IP address, cookie data, and RFID tags.
3. Special Category Information, for example;
*Health and genetic data
*Racial or ethnic data
The GDPR applies to all organizations established in the EU and to organizations, whether or not established in the EU, that process the personal data of EU individuals in connection with either the offering of goods or services to data subjects in the EU or the monitoring of behavior that takes place within the EU. Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, including names, email addresses, and phone numbers, which is not publically available.
