The General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR, also is a key facet of Europe’s digital privacy legislation and a requirement to conduct business within the European Union. It was adopted by the European Parliament and European Council in April 2016 and features a set of well-enforced guidelines for businesses to collect, handle and dispose of user data.
‘With GDPR, the responsibility has now shifted to the business owner and controller to make sure that they do everything they can to protect their data silos and databases for all business systems while giving individuals more rights.’ – Alistair Dickinson, the essential business guide to GDPR
With our recent expansion to the European region, Maximl is bound by law to comply with the stipulations of GDPR. Accordingly, our data management procedure will take up the 7 core tenets of the regulation: data lawfulness, fairness, and transparency, purpose limitation, data minimization, accuracy, storage limitation, security, and accountability. This is a positive development for Maximl – one that is primed to enhance the quality of our internal cyber process.
And more so for our clients as GDPR compliance will prevent the exploitation and misuse of their data (Personal Identifiable Information) – not just within Europe, but everywhere we operate.
