Description

This book provides expert advice on the practical implementation of the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and systematically analyses its various provisions. Examples, tables, a checklist etc. showcase the practical consequences of the new legislation. The handbook examines the GDPR's scope of application, the organizational and material requirements for data protection, the rights of data subjects, the role of the Supervisory Authorities, enforcement and fines under the GDPR, and national particularities. In addition, it supplies a brief outlook on the legal consequences for seminal data processing areas, such as Cloud Computing, Big Data and the Internet of Things.Adopted in 2016, the General Data Protection Regulation will come into force in May 2018. It provides for numerous new and intensified data protection obligations, as well as a significant increase in fines (up to 20 million euros). As a result, not only companies located within the European Union will have to change their approach to data security; due to the GDPR's broad, transnational scope of application, it will affect numerous companies worldwide.

Review Text

"This is a good guide to a complex new regulation. Its main goal is to explain what the regulation requires and of whom it is required. The regulation's concepts are well explained in simple terms, with loads of useful examples. Anyone working in the area of governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) will find this book invaluable (and will probably be assured of a long and fruitful career)." (David B. Henderson, Computing Reviews, July, 2018)
