Could the GDPR mean an end to parking fines?

One potential consequence of this could be an end to the way that private firms issue parking fines. The DVLA then takes the information it has gathered, such as our address details, and sells it to private parking firms. Providing this information to private parking fine companies is a lucrative side income for the DVLA. In the second quarter of this financial year alone, it sold some 1.4 million records. Private parking firms used these to pursue drivers for penalties up to £100. The RAC has warned that it expects the level of parking fines issued to increase significantly over the Christmas period. This could easily run to over six million if there is a boom in parking ticket numbers over Christmas. Because parking fines are such a profitable business, those involved in it are keen to spot drivers who have overstayed their ticket by even a few minutes. Parking companies allow no grace period at the end of your parking period, even at the chaotic Christmas time when checkouts are busier and shopping trips take longer. With the cost of Christmas rising every year, a £100 parking fine is something that few families can afford to weather. Of those companies cashing in on using DVLA data, Parking Eye was the main culprit during the second quarter of 2017-18. It’s not just private parking companies that are making money from drivers overstaying their welcome. English councils made a record income from parking fines and charges last financial year, at a staggering £819 million. It remains to be seen how this will be interpreted under the GDPR. Meanwhile, Sir Greg Knight is not letting the issue of parking fines drop. His private member’s bill aimed at dealing with the excesses of parking fines will be debated in the House of Commons in the New Year, as he pushes for a fairer balance between landowners’ and drivers’ rights. Do you think the GDPR will mean an end to the DVLA selling drivers’ data to private parking firms? Or will the organisation simply find a way to circumvent the new regulations? Leave a comment below to air your views.

More Bad News On GDPR 11/29/2017

A new study by Openprise shows that three out of four companies are unprepared for the General Data Protection Regulation. Openprise, a provider of a data orchestration platform and compliance services, polled 508 attendees at the recent Dreamforce conference. Of that sample, only about 52% were aware of GDPR, and a paltry 43% of the sales and marketing people knew about it. Granted, awareness was higher among those who have data on EU citizens in their systems – 72% knew of GDPR. But only 60% of those have a framework to ensure compliance with the regulation that takes effect next May. And of those that do know of the pending rule, only 49% have a framework. 32% aren’t sure what the biggest compliance challenge is. What’s the problem? For 32%, the biggest hurdle is “Managing data stored across different parts of the organization.” Another 21% cited lack of understanding of GDPR’s impact, and 10% said the issue was identifying who in their firm is responsible for compliance. Need we repeat that the penalties for non-compliance are €20 million, or 4% of a company’s annual global revenue, whichever is higher? Of course, it depends on the magnitude of the offense. You have to have affirmative consent to hold and process data on people – and to market to them. If you’re big enough in Europe, it will pay to hire an inhouse specialist to manage compliance. That said, big vendors and companies probably won’t suffer much at first. “They have a huge army of lawyers,” Allen Pogorzelski, vice president of marketing for Openprise, recently said. “Most have a compliance group. The ones that don’t are going to be caught flat-footed.” “It’s disconcerting that companies as a whole still lack awareness when it comes to GDPR, not to mention an understanding of how to gain compliance. The runway is disappearing.” King concludes, “If you have any EU data in your sales and marketing databases, you must act now to ensure GDPR compliance and avoid steep penalties that could sink your company.”

Global News: GDPR, what you need to do

The General Data Protection Regulation will come into force in all of the 28 Member States of the European Union on 25 May 2018. This will herald a significant change in the regulatory landscape for data protection giving EU citizens greater control of their personal data. The new Regulation directly affects both EU and non-EU based businesses as it applies to organisations processing and holding personal data of data subjects in the EU, regardless of the organisation’s location. Non-EU data controllers and processors must comply with the European data protection obligations when they have an establishment in the EU or if they offer goods and services in the EU or monitor behaviour of individuals in the EU. Organisations based outside the EU which are captured by the GDPR must appoint an EU-based representative. The impact of the GDPR will also be felt by businesses in any supply-chain with EU based organisations as these organisations will be seeking to ensure that the processes, policies and safeguards in place with all their sub-contractors meet GDPR standards. The Feb-March 2018 edition of research News will also feature information on the General Data Protection Regulation. First off you need to determine whether your organisation’s activities mean that GDPR applies. If it does next step is to conduct an information audit to fully understand personal data use and processing within your organisation. The kinds of questions you need to investigate include: Where is personal data stored? How secure is it? Who has control and access to the data? Is it shared with third parties and other processors? What are our subcontractor arrangements? Are these sufficient? Understand the legal grounds for collecting data. Is it only consent or do you use other grounds? EFAMRO has produced some excellent guidance on understanding the different legal bases for collecting data. If you use informed consent you need to look at information notices, policies and so on to ensure that you are being “Fair and transparent” to individuals about your processing unless the individual already has this information. Questions to consider: Can your IT systems and organisation processes cope with the new rights? Think about subject access, data portability, right to be forgotten, recording objections or withdrawing from processing, plus deletion of information. Limit data retention periods and consider retention periods for different types of data and/or data purposes. Review your corporate data and security policies, processes and training. These will all need to reflect the new requirements and staff need to understand their obligations.

GDPR gremlin

Meeting the demands of GDPR is easier said than done and a substantial proportion of businesses are still showing a worrying lack of preparedness, writes Andrew Lintell of Tufin, a network security product company. A key issue that many businesses are also struggling to cope with is the hugely complex, and difficult to manage, nature of modern networks, which now typically incorporate multiple databases and a growing number of network devices that constantly manage potentially sensitive data. With business networks constantly growing and data flowing across an ever-larger environment, keeping track of all the moving parts can be a significant challenge. When it comes to GDPR, the first business challenge should be to tackle complexity head-on, by increasing visibility and gaining a strong sense of all the moving parts of the network. By mapping the network – and ensuring it is regularly updated – businesses get a clear view of how data flows through the company. Mapping the network also helps to maintain security policy compliance by enabling businesses to easily identify all their network traffic across different applications and services, based on actual usage. Once everything has been mapped, network segmentation can then be applied to ensure that only the appropriate network zones or user groups have access to specific types of data, which helps to keep customer information safe in the event of a data breach. Key to everything is having a centralised tool to manage network security policies and streamline all future changes made to the network. When GDPR comes around, making sure doors to corporate networks remain locked will be key to ensuring compliance – and automation can significantly reduce the amount of effort required. With networks being more dynamic than ever before, carrying out regular reviews of existing rules and policies is essential, but also an extremely tedious task to do manually. The so-called ‘ripple effect’ where a minor change to one policy causes a vulnerability in another area of the corporate network is a very real danger. Most importantly, business leaders can feel reassured the whole network meets regulatory standards. Maintaining GDPR compliance 24-7-365 is no mean feat and businesses need all the help they can get. Through an automated approach, risks and vulnerabilities can be proactively identified and resolved across even the most complicated network environment, ensuring compliance all year round. Time may be in short supply, but it’s still not too late for businesses to start putting their GDPR plans into action and turning compliance into a valuable competitive advantage.
