FAQ
Is GDPR a technical or legal issue?
The GDPR is a question that brings together legal regulations and technical means to implement those regulations. If you want to bring your business to the "compliant with GDPR" status, a team of lawyers and information security specialists should work on this issue.
Which business is 100% not covered by the GDPR?
For the GDPR, an extraterritorial regime applies. This means that the GDPR rules apply to persons who process the personal data of EU residents and citizens, regardless of the place of incorporation and residence. That is, if a company processes personal data of users from the EU, it is obliged to comply with the GDPR regulation. In theory, if a company does not collect and process this kind of data, it will not fall under the GDPR. In practice, every company must be audited for "falling" under the GDPR.
Why should I contact lawyers? I believe that I myself can determine if I need a GDPR.
Since a company may face a fine of up to 20 million euros or 4% of the company's finished global turnover for the previous financial year for non-compliance with the GDPR requirements (depending on which figure is higher), it is still better to contact lawyers.
I have a personal data processing policy on my site. It's enough?
No, not enough. Personal data processing policy is just one of the means to comply with the GDPR requirements.
How long does it take to bring your business to GDPR?
It depends on the size of the business and the amount of data processing. Practice shows that, on average, this process usually takes one year.
