In recent decades there has been a change in the way we store and how we organize our daily lives. Our personal and professional activities have led to an increase in data. Digital technology makes it possible to preserve the details of our daily lives to create a digital footprint. Technological developments follow each other in rapid succession, resulting in an increase in data traffic, and the exchange of personal data in automated processes and systems.
In order to ensure that individuals, whose personal data is involved, have more control over their personal data, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was created. The GDPR introduces new and stricter rules for the processing of personal data.
The GDPR places the responsibility on the organization to demonstrate that you comply with the privacy rules. In short: the GDPR rules force you to think about how your organization processes and protects personal data. You must therefore be able to demonstrate that the processing of personal data within your organization is in line with the requirements of the GDPR.
For organizations that do not have the right expertise, the GDPR is a complex legislation. GDPR remains complex because it interfaces with other subjects such as portrait law. deJuristen, however, is happy to help you translate these complex regulations into an understandable language.
