GDPR regulation: Namirial solutions for professionals and companies

What is the GDPR regulation?

The GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation, aims to harmonize and strengthen the rules on the collection and processing of personal data of the European Union citizens and residents, both within and outside the borders of the EU. In addition, it simplifies the regulatory environment concerning international affairs by unifying the regulations within the EU.

The text of the General Data Protection Regulation was approved as EU Regulation 2016/679 by the European Parliament and the Council on 27 April 2016. After that, it was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 4 May 2016, and entered into force on May 24 of the same year. It has been operational since 25 May 2018.

In addition, EU Regulation 2016/679 addresses the issue of exporting personal data outside the European Union. In fact, it obliges all data controllers (even with registered offices outside the EU) who process data of EU residents to fulfill their obligations.

The GDPR requires data controllers and processors to have an adequate degree of:

  • Accountability: the adoption of all measures to avoid or contain any violations of personal data;
  • Awareness: an adequate level of training and knowledge of company dynamics and of the risks inherent in data processing;
  • Reporting: the ability to document and demonstrate to the supervisory authority that data processing complies with the European regulation on privacy.

GDPR regulation: what are the opportunities for companies and professionals?

The GDPR regulation obliges public and private bodies, companies, associations and professionals to adopt technical and organizational measures to protect the personal data of individuals.

However, compliance with EU Regulation 2016/679 is not just a legal obligation. It is an opportunity for companies and professionals to raise production standards and work efficiency. In fact, complying with the GDPR and adapting to the new European regulation on privacy allows to avoid:

  • a sanction that for companies ranges from 1 to 4 percent of total annual worldwide turnover and for professionals from 1 to 2 percent;
  • any requests for compensation from the interested parties (end users/customers) who may bring civil action against the owner or data processor who has violated personal data;
  • stop of work/production activity due to the interruption of IT services violated by external or illegal accesses that have not been managed in a preventive manner following the GDPR;
  • the negative effect of violations, caused or suffered, on the image, reputation and reliability of the company or professional and therefore an inflection of the demand for services / products.

12 key points of the GDPR: guidelines of the 2016/679 EU Regulation

Here are the 12 steps to comply with the GDPR:

  1. Disclosure: disclosure is an effective tool to ensure transparency on the processing of personal data and the exercise of rights;
  2. Consent: the data subject’s consent to the processing of personal data must be “preventive” and “unambiguous”, even when expressed through electronic means, for example by checking a box on a website. For the European Regulation, consent must also be “explicit” and “granular”;
  3. Limits to automated data processing: with the European Regulation 2016/679, the limits to the possibility for the data controller to take decisions only on the basis of automated data processing increase;
  4. Rights of the interested party: the interested party has the right to request access to personal data, rectification or cancellation, limitation of processing, to oppose the treatment, and the right to data portability;
  5. Data transfer: the transfer of personal data to countries outside the European Union or international organizations that do not meet data protection standards is prohibited;
  6. Data Breach: the data controller must communicate any violations of personal data (data breach) to the National Data Protection Authority;
  7. Privacy by Default & by Design: the GDPR promotes the accountability of data controllers and the adoption of policies that consider the risks that the processing of personal data may entail for the rights of the data subjects;
  8. Appointments: the appointment of the Data Processor and the Data Protection Officer must be express, specific, written and referable to certain tasks;
  9. Security measures: they must ensure an adequate level of security, balancing implementation and costs with risks;
  10. Register of activities: this is a requirement that replaces the obligation to notify the authorities of the processing. Together with the impact assessment, it serves to define the appropriate organizational technical measures;
  11. Risk assessment – Impact assessment: the risk assessment must take into account any accidental or illegal destruction, loss, modification, disclosure, or unauthorized access to personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed. Physical, material or immaterial damage must be taken into account.
  12. Emergency plan: considering the importance of data circulation, the need to manage its flow and lawful processing, actions must be planned in the event of any harmful or dangerous events for the processing of personal data.
