The GDPR will introduce new accountability obligations, stronger rights and restrictions on international data flows. Against a backdrop of radical technological advances, the new framework is ambitious, complex and strict. It presents any organisation that has so far failed to begin preparations with a step challenge to become compliant in time.

The GDPR also introduces the need for organisations to prepare a breach notification plan in the event that something does actually go wrong. If you’re already clear on what type of personal data you manage and where data flows, then this process will be somewhat easier. It’s worth being clear on who will co-ordinate the customer communication, the media response and the remedial activity – and make sure you rehearse this so you are practiced in the actual event.
