Your resource for the information you need to prepare for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

On May 25, 2018, the EU GDPR takes effect. It is an important change in data privacy regulation and MENTIS is here to help you get prepared.

What is GDPR?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizen’s data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.


Who does it apply to?

The GDPR not only applies to organizations located within the EU but it will also apply to organizations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behavior of, EU data subjects. It applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of data subjects residing in the European Union, regardless of the company’s location. It is important to note that these rules apply to both controllers and processors -- meaning 'clouds' will not be exempt from GDPR enforcement.


What are the penalties?

Organizations can be fined up to 4% of annual global turnover for breaching GDPR or €20 Million. There is a tiered approach to fines, e.g. a company can be fined 2% for not having their records in order (article 28), not notifying the supervising authority and data subject about a breach, or not conducting impact assessment.
