How confident are you of your GDPR compliance?

Now that the GDPR is here and you have completed all your GDPR work, how confident are you that you have done it correctly?

Many organisations are finding that they have been advised poorly and have lost valuable data or have spent money and time on unnecessary things. For example, companies have been sold tools and services they did not require or have many gaps in their compliance. Marketing companies GDPR compliant but oblivious about PECR requirements. HR relying on completely inappropriate lawful basis for processing which is likely to get them into all sorts of issues later on. These are some real examples of GDPR gone bad.

What is the Scope of the GDPR?

Article 3.2 - Organisations Offering Goods and Services into the EU

The scope of the GDPR is often the most debated and confusing element. There have been many posts asking for clarifications of who a data subject is and what is the territorial scope of the GDPR. This is my attempt at explaining what the scope of the GDPR is in a pictorial way. The territorial scope of the GDPR can be complex. It does not only apply to companies in the EU but according to Article 3.2 of the GDPR by the virtue of providing products and services into the EU from outside the EU, the GDPR could apply to organisations located anywhere in the world. The services or products do not necessarily have to be paid for. Various tests such as the currency the fees are paid in and the language used on the website, the advertising target and whether the goods are delivered to locations in the EU is used to decide whether organisations fall in the scope of article 3.2

Article 3.1 - Organisations Established in the EU

Furthermore, according to Article 3.1 of the GDPR, organisations that have a presence in the EU by the way of being “established” in the context of their activities, the GDPR could cover their global personal data processing. Establishment is very loosely defined. An organisation could be established by having just an office, a chapter a sales office/agent, representation a field office etc. in the context of its activities. In such circumstances, the GDPR not only applies to the organisation’s processing of EU data subject's data but also any processing of personal data of any individual regardless of their nationality, residence or physical location. In effect, the GDPR could apply any organisation anywhere in the world and any individual anywhere in the world. In summary, the GDPR could therefore, apply to any person’s personal data anywhere in the world and any organisation processing personal data anywhere in the world.

WHAT IS PERSONAL DATA UNDER GDPR?

There is a lot of confusion around what constitutes personal data under GDPR. The problem is unlike PII, the GDPR very loosely defines personal data. It is not PII (Personally Identifiable Information). We have a collated list of what constitutes Personal Data on our site. This appears to the most comprehensive list so far we have seen on the Internet. One thing to remember is that, personal data can be direct or indirect, the indirect data can also be contextual, location based, attributes, descriptions etc.

Can we help you with your EU GDPR compliance?

We can take you through scoping, analysis, data mapping, DPIA all the way through to protecting personal data for GDPR compliance.

Do you need help implementing ISO27001?
