EU GDPR Webinar: The IT Manager’s guide to GDPR – Getting your department up to speed and ready

GDPR Compliance

The regulation increases the level of control EEA citizens and residents have over their personal data in the new digital age and presents a more unified environment for international business across Europe. The Regulation impacts any business that receives, processes, stores or transfers personal data of EEA-based individuals, regardless of its location. Personal data is defined broadly and typically includes information relating to an individual such as name, email, location, online identifier, IP address, home address etc. New rights are given to individual data subjects concerning the personal data being stored, including the right prior notification of what data is being used for, how it will be processed and when it will be deleted. As a result, most businesses dealing the European market have had to review and update their data practices and privacy policies. 

BlueSnap & the GDPR. BlueSnap has been focused on completing its General Data Protection Regulation compliance efforts. To enable BlueSnap merchants to continue accepting orders from individuals based in the European Economic Area from that date onwards, the GDPR compels us to put into effect a Data Protection agreement containing mandatory provisions for all merchants wherever they are based. We therefore issued a Data Protection Addendum effective for BlueSnap and all merchants as from 25th May 2018. Review the new Data Protection Addendum here: https://home. 

In order to cover the aspect of data transfer from the European Economic Area to the US, BlueSnap has been certified on Privacy Shield since Q3 2016. We also added certification under the Swiss-US Privacy Shield scheme in 2017 and are currently finalizing updated data processing agreements with relevant parties involved in the processing, receipt, and storage of personal data. We strongly advise merchants that receive shopper details from EEA-based individuals to take immediate steps to ensure their own data management practices are in compliance with the GDPR, and that other third party services used in addition to BlueSnap, are also compliant.

‘Everyone is breaking the law right now’: GDPR compliance efforts are falling short

The arrival of the General Data Protection Regulation a month ago led to a flurry of activity, clogging email inboxes and flooding people with tracking consent notices. Experts say much of that activity was for show because much of it fails to render companies compliant with GDPR. Part of the issue, experts say, is the vague regulation has been interpreted in wildly different ways. GDPR consent-request messages vary wildly across sites. There are default pre-ticked opt-ins, buried options that require users to hunt for them, consent banners with information only available at a further click but no button to reject, and implied consent approaches. 

Others have simply reskinned cookie-banner messages required under the existing ePrivacy directive. A tumultuous few weeks after the law’s arrival on May 25, in which programmatic ad volumes plummeted mostly as a result of Google’s last-minute GDPR policy changes, programmatic spending is returning to pre-GDPR levels. GDPR has been criticized for being vague and open to interpretation, which is what led to such disparate consent-gaining methods. Publishers across Europe are divided between those that have taken softer legitimate interest-based approaches or opt-out methods to claim compliance, while others have gone the harder consent-based route that requires people to opt in. Bloomberg and Forbes appear to be taking strict active consent approaches, while others like the Guardian and MailOnline are running consent banners. 

Several publishers have divided explainers on their cookie use into those used for advertising and tracking, and those used for site analytics – though users aren’t always able to pick one and reject the other; in many cases, it’s all or nothing. Others are simply hoping to stay under the radar until they have figured out how to be compliant in a way that doesn’t damage the business model. Publishers went on a soul-searching mission when ad blocking reached crisis levels in 2017.

80 Percent of Companies Still Not GDPR-Compliant

Several weeks after the deadline for General Data Protection Regulation compliance, the vast majority of companies are either still working on it or have yet to begin the process. That’s according to the latest research from TrustArc, which surveyed 600 IT and legal professionals responsible for privacy at companies required to meet GDPR compliance in the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union – one month following the May 25. Only one in five companies surveyed believe it is GDPR compliant, while 53 percent are in the implementation phase and 27 percent have not yet started their implementation. EU companies, excluding the U.K., are further along, with 27 percent reporting they are compliant, versus 12 percent in the U.S. and 21 percent in the U.K. 

While many companies have significant work to do, nearly three in four expect to be compliant by the end of this year and 93 percent by the end of 2019. While many companies still have a long way to go, a comparison to August 2017. About one in four companies spent more than $500,000 to become GDPR-compliant, while one in three plan to spend that amount on compliance efforts between June and December 2018. Percent of U.S. companies spent more than $1 million on compliance vx. 10 percent for U.K. 

and 7 percent for EU companies. Despite difficulties in becoming GDPR-compliant, 65 percent view GDPR as having a positive impact on their business, while 15 percent view the regulation as having a negative impact. Meeting customer expectations was the main driver to become compliant, much higher than concern for fines. Complexity of GDPR posed the biggest challenge to compliance. The vast majority said data privacy will become more important at their companies post-GDPR deadline, and 80 percent of companies plan to increase their spending on GDPR technology and tools to maintain compliance.

GDPR News Center News for 09-28-2018

Most firms will not be GDPR-ready by compliance deadline

With just one month to go until the compliance deadline for the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, research data shows that many companies will not be ready in time. Start Download. Only 51% of companies polled say they have all the systems in place that will enable them to remove EU citizen data from servers on request, including back-ups, in accordance with Articles 16 and 17 of the GDPR. Worryingly, 21% do not yet have any systems in place to meet these requirements, according to a study published by data security company WinMagic. In many cases, the survey shows that companies lack the systems and processes to ensure compliance with the new legislation, which affects all companies holding and processing EU citizen data. 

Organisations found to be non-compliant could also face a range of other punitive actions from data protection authorities, including compulsory data protection audits, warnings, reprimands, enforcement notices and stop processing orders. Data management delays: A quarter of respondents admitted that systems were only part implemented, and would not allow the automated removal of citizen data from back-ups. Failing to encrypt data: An average of 20% of the companies surveyed lack continuous encryption for personally identifiable information across their cloud and on-premise servers, despite appropriate levels of encryption and anonymisation being a requirement for GDPR compliance. Where companies lack strict security and encryption management for technologies such as virtual machines and hyper-converged infrastructure, uncontrolled data sprawl can be common, leading to silos of hidden data and a fragmentation of governance, which leaves companies non-compliant and at risk of heavy fines. Poor data breach monitoring: When a data breach occurs, the report said speed is the key element in responding to ongoing attacks, but also to controlling the spread and abuse of data by cyber criminals. 

The GDPR requires companies to report data breaches to the relevant data protection authority within 72 hours of discovery, yet 41% of respondents said they could not achieve this today. Many companies lack the tools that will identify whether a breach has ever occurred or the data taken. Commenting on the fast-approaching GDPR compliance deadline, Tamzin Evershed, senior director and global privacy lead at Veritas Technologies, said that in recent months, companies have been striving to gain complete visibility and control of their data – including what information is stored, who owns it, who has access and how it is used. This approach is in line with that advocated by UK information commissioner Elizabeth Denham, who has repeatedly emphasised that the GDPR is about gaining and maintaining consumer trust, which is essential for the development and innovation of business using data.

With just one month to go until the compliance deadline for the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, research data shows that many companies will not be ready in time. Start Download. Only 51% of companies polled say they have all the systems in place that will enable them to remove EU citizen data from servers on request, including back-ups, in accordance with Articles 16 and 17 of the GDPR. Worryingly, 21% do not yet have any systems in place to meet these requirements, according to a study published by data security company WinMagic. In many cases, the survey shows that companies lack the systems and processes to ensure compliance with the new legislation, which affects all companies holding and processing EU citizen data. 

Organisations found to be non-compliant could also face a range of other punitive actions from data protection authorities, including compulsory data protection audits, warnings, reprimands, enforcement notices and stop processing orders. Data management delays: A quarter of respondents admitted that systems were only part implemented, and would not allow the automated removal of citizen data from back-ups. Failing to encrypt data: An average of 20% of the companies surveyed lack continuous encryption for personally identifiable information across their cloud and on-premise servers, despite appropriate levels of encryption and anonymisation being a requirement for GDPR compliance. Where companies lack strict security and encryption management for technologies such as virtual machines and hyper-converged infrastructure, uncontrolled data sprawl can be common, leading to silos of hidden data and a fragmentation of governance, which leaves companies non-compliant and at risk of heavy fines. Poor data breach monitoring: When a data breach occurs, the report said speed is the key element in responding to ongoing attacks, but also to controlling the spread and abuse of data by cyber criminals. 

The GDPR requires companies to report data breaches to the relevant data protection authority within 72 hours of discovery, yet 41% of respondents said they could not achieve this today. Many companies lack the tools that will identify whether a breach has ever occurred or the data taken. Commenting on the fast-approaching GDPR compliance deadline, Tamzin Evershed, senior director and global privacy lead at Veritas Technologies, said that in recent months, companies have been striving to gain complete visibility and control of their data – including what information is stored, who owns it, who has access and how it is used. This approach is in line with that advocated by UK information commissioner Elizabeth Denham, who has repeatedly emphasised that the GDPR is about gaining and maintaining consumer trust, which is essential for the development and innovation of business using data.

The General Data Protection Regulation very significantly increases the obligations and responsibilities for organisations and businesses in how they collect, use and protect personal data. At the centre of the new law is the requirement for organisations and businesses to be fully transparent about how they are using and safeguarding personal data, and to be able to demonstrate accountability for their data processing activities.

GDPR

The GDPR arose, in large part, as a holistic way to update existing, disparate, and sometimes-conflicting laws and regulations across the EU and to strengthen the protection of individuals’ personal data, in light of the rapidly-evolving technological landscape, increased interconnectivity and globalization, and more elaborate international transfers of personal data. The GDPR generally replaces the legacy mix of national data protection laws that are currently in place with a single, comprehensive law, which is directly enforceable in each EU member countries.

General Data Protection Regulation

The GDPR aims to strengthen and unify data protection for people within European Union. It attempts to strike a balance between the rights of the individual and the ability of companies to differentiate their services and products by having access to quality information. The GDPR lays the foundation for determining what companies need to consider with regard to personal data and how they can demonstrate compliance. A key focus of GDPR is data privacy rights bestowed to an individual. Figure 1: Rights to the Individual under GDPR. 

In addition, GDPR focus areas include global applicability, enhanced responsibilities for data controllers and data processors, privacy by design, transparency, breach notification, and a penalty of 4% of annual worldwide turnover for non-compliance. With very little time remaining for General Data Protection Regulation to become effective, organizations need to know what has to be done to achieve compliance and also evaluate how they will address the technology and process challenges. With this webinar, we also explore the impact of GDPR on blockchain systems, as well as the scope of using a blockchain to implement GDPR solutions.

GDPR could wipe 2% from Google’s revenues, according to Deutsche Bank

The European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation could wipe 2 percentage points from the revenues of Alphabet, Google’s corporate parent, according to Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley and his team. GDPR comes into effect on May 25, 2018, and requires any company that does business in the EU to protect the privacy of consumers’ data, restrict what kinds of data companies can collect, and make data collection law across the continent simpler. The Deutsche Bank team regard the regulatory climate as somewhat threatening to Google, given recent negative rulings from the European Commission around Google’s alleged monopoly status in terms of online shopping, search and the bundling of Google apps on Android phones. When GDPR comes into effect, companies will be required to treat consumers with a high level of privacy by default, and get consent for further data transfers. Deutsche Bank estimates that about 33% of Google’s revenues come from Europe, and within that population, 30% of users might opt out of data sharing. 69 at the time of writing, having risen from $796 a year earlier. 

Google reported $28 billion in revenues for Q3 2017..
