To recap some of the key points from the video:

  • All organisations which process Personal Data (storing is considered processing) are subject to these regulations. It applies just as much to voluntary / non-profit organisations like sports clubs, charities etc. as it does to “for profit” organisations.
  • Infringements of GDPR can cost up €20M or 4% of turnover (whichever is greater)
  • Your organisation is going to be affected in a number of ways. You’ll need to consider how:
  • Marketing, Staff Workload, Proof of Compliance, IT systems, Security, Cloud Services, Use of children's data, Retention Periods, 3rd Party relationships etc. …are affected by the regulations
  • Customers (and staff) have stronger rights as to how you can use their data. They can withdraw consent for direct marketing and profiling as well as object to the processing of their data full stop. This especially applies when you only process based on consent, rather than on a legal basis (i.e. on the basis of your contract with the customer / staff member)
