Across the EU and including Malta, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years – we’re here to make sure you’re prepared.
After four years of preparation and debate, the GDPR was finally approved by the EU Parliament on 14 April 2016. It entered in force 20 days after its publication in the EU Official Journal and will be directly applicable in all members states two years after this date. Enforcement date: 25 May 2018 – at which time those organisations in non-compliance will face heavy fines and the Maltese Data Protection Act (Chapter 440 of the Laws of Malta) will be replaced by GDPR.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organisations across the region approach data privacy.
The key articles of the GDPR, as well as information on its business impact, are the object of our advisory role to make sure your organisation is compliant and well prepared.
