Apogee have made preparations to deliver the organisation’s compliance with GDPR by 25th May 2018 and to ensure that ongoing management is transferred to business as usual activities.
Like most organisations, data is vital to our operations and success; while we endeavour to limit the amount of personal information we collect and process, we are committed to ensuring we do the right thing for Apogee, our clients, our employees and the third parties we work with.
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.
GDPR extends the scope of EU data protection law to all foreign companies processing data of EU residents. It provides for a harmonization of the data protection regulations throughout the EU, thereby making it easier for non-European companies to comply with these regulations; however, this comes at the cost of a strict data protection compliance regime with severe penalties of up to 4% of worldwide turnover or €20 million, whichever is higher.
