In light of the recent Facebook & Cambridge Analytica scandal, it’s no surprise that people across the board are now talking about data privacy a whole lot more than they were when GDPR were initially announced. When we set out on our own GDPR journey we realised how much work was involved from evaluating and implementing changes in how we work in our own business. Rather than worrying about GDPR we should be embracing it. There are some historic changes happening around data privacy and data protection right now. It could mean that the databases you have and information you have of your customers is useless and actually going to be useless or even illegal. 

In April 2016 everyone was given 2 full years to prepare, but many businesses have not even started to do anything about it. On 25th May 2018 the GDPR will be replacing the outdated 1998 Data Protection Act. The Drum Even before the 2 year countdown started ticking, The Drum Magazine put out a video that warned digital design and marketing businesses, that there did not seem to be much awareness of the changes. Often you don’t even notice but it can be learning your how you talk to your staff and customers, it can send correspondence to your suppliers asking for payment to a bank account that is not yours, even record logins to your bank so that it can empty your account. Information Security is only a small part of GDPR readiness. 

FinesAt present data loss, breaches, improper / unauthorised use of personal data, including marketing to people without evidence of opt in permission, can result in fines of up to £500,000 by the Information Commissioners Office. Search by sectorTo help drive this home and see how business in your sector have already been affected, you can select organisation types and see what sort of action is being taken before the GDPR even comes into effect.

Zuckerberg’s briefing notes hint Facebook isn’t ready for GDPR

Mark Zuckerberg had an awful lot to remember during his grilling by Congress on Tuesday, judging by pages of private briefing notes captured by a quick-witted AP photographer. There’s one section right at the bottom of notes which will stand out to anyone interested in online privacy. GDPR is the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation, a new European law designed specifically to bring web giants like Facebook to heel over the way they suck up vast amounts of user data. One of the most important changes under the regulation is that Facebook will have to proactively ask for your explicit consent to process data on your ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, political views, and religion. The note suggests that Facebook hasn’t quite worked out how it will do this. 

You can determine what data you share with Facebook, but you can’t then control or really understand how Facebook uses that data unless you go digging around in your privacy settings. Under GDPR, Facebook and advertisers will need to be much clearer with you about what data they are using and why. Facebook will soon need to let people download their data then take it to a rival service. Zuckerberg’s briefing notes makes absolutely no mention of data portability, another big, important requirement under GDPR. This essentially means that European users will be able to download their data from Facebook, then take it to a competing service. 

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Not only will GDPR potentially rewrite how users actually use Facebook, Google, and other big tech services, it could cost those companies an awful lot of money if they don’t comply with the rules and if users decide to revoke access to their data. Users opt out of sharing their data, that could wipe 2% of Google’s revenue, and cost Facebook $2.8 billion.
