In May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR), a new law, will be implemented across the European Union. When live, companies must notify the relevant authorities within 72 hours of discovering a personal data breach, and, in serious cases, the data subjects affected by the breach must also be notified. The GDPR also applies to organizations based outside the EU that collect or process data from EU residents. The GDPR will also substantially increase fines for data breach involving personal data to €10,000,000 - or 2% of total worldwide annual turnover - whichever is higher!
