EU´s General Data Protection Regulation: 10 uneasy Truths for any Business

This discussion will focus on the EU General Data Protection Regulation and consequences for business. With this piece of law, Data Protection has inevitably arrived to be a brick in our compliance walls. Data Protection rules will be even more rigid and harmonized. Enforcement is clearly expected to be higher than to date. The new principle “One-Stop-Shop” will determine the competent authority at the headquarter of a company, which will no longer be able to make weaker parts of the group be responsible for data protection compliance.  Decisions and measures by the authorities in the future ought to be coherent. However,  the creation of legal certainty for existing and new business processes might take some time. Apart from that, companies must be prepared to understand their own data better as access and information rights are strengthened and the “Right to be forgotten” has been created. For some industries,  the user´s Right to Data Portability will challenge our data structures and policies. Not only sanctions will be higher than today, but the threat of image loss likely will become virulent under the new regulation. There is some time left for doing the homework.
