Security & Compliance
EDMi are an authority on data security & GDPR compliance Australia and South East Asia. It astonishes us how very few businesses are aware of their data compliance obligations. A recent survey revealed as little as 20% of Australian business are aware of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect in 2019. What’s more, failure to adhere to these new regulations can result in harsh fines damaging your organisations bottom line, brand image and customer relationships.
GDPR Compliance Australia
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and refers to the EU law on data privacy which rolled out across Europe on May 25th, 2018. In the APAC region, and for GDPR compliance Australia, businesses that are collecting EU residents personal data for business purposes, must comply. GDPR Australia laws require such companies to be Data compliant with regards to the storage, use, and privacy of people’s personal information/data.
Some of the key privacy and GDPR compliance requirements include:
Updating your privacy and cookies to comply with the GDPR
Appointment of a data protection officer to oversee GDPR
Requirement of clear consent of individuals for data processing
