GDPR and Australian Business

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was approved by the EU Parliament and will be enforcement on 25 May 2018 - at which time organisations in non-compliance may face heavy fines. While this is an EU directive it will indirectly affect Australian business if an entity collects personal information on EU citizens.

GDPR provides rights for individuals to know and understand what data is stored about them and the purpose of its use. The primary areas of focus for GDPR are:

  • consent
  • access to personal data
  • data erasure
  • data portability 
  • breach notification

Businesses that are responsible for the collection and processing of data need to ensure that any data processing contracted to a third party service provider is also compliant. Data breach could see businesses liable for up to $20 million.
