GDPR - Top Ten Issues

With the implementation of the Europe-wide General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), there have been sweeping changes to data protection law in Ireland.

One of the fundamental aims of the GDPR is to affect a change in organisations' cultures and attitudes towards data protection generally. While the GDPR will ultimately impose a greater burden on those organisations that process personal data, compliance with the GDPR will likely create a competitive edge in the future.

Eversheds Sutherland is currently working with a large number of organisations to create a GDPR compliance roadmap, which in turn enables organisations to be clear in relation to the steps that need to be taken in order to ensure GDPR compliance.

The key to compliance is to understand the data landscape and the topics and issues to the fore of GDPR.

With this in mind, our video below seeks to address the top ten most common issues raised in relation to the GDPR.

GDPR Preparation Booklet

We are currently working with a large number of organisations to create a GDPR compliance roadmap which will enable them to be clear in relation to the steps that need to be taken in order to ensure compliance. The key is to begin the process as early as possible in order to allow for a smooth transition. Key questions companies need to ask themselves include ‘who’s data do you hold?' ‘what data do you hold?’, ‘why are you holding the data?’, ‘how long you should retain the data?’ and ‘where you are holding/storing the data?

We have prepared a GDPR Preparation Booklet which is designed to assist organisations in understanding the above questions, and complying with the GDPR.
