GDPR goes into effect on May 25th, be sure to update!
The EU plans to step up enforcement – with large fines and mandatory audit rights.
EU countries can no longer charge registration fees to data processors, so revenue to support these agencies will come from fines assessed against companies.
In the event of a data breach, your fines depend on the number of people affected, steps taken to mitigate risk, and past infringements. Fines can reach 20m euros or 4% annual turnover, whichever is greater.
Any data protection authority in the EU can audit your data practices, at any time, and you will be forced to provide proof of compliance.
To protect your company in the event of an audit, GDPR Banner allows you to securely export a log of every IP address that has granted unambiguous data access to your store.
