100% GDPR Compliant File Sharing and Storage
Why is GPDR compliance important?
If you’re a professional working with organizations and individuals in Europe, it’s important that you comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR regulates how organizations collect and process personal data of EU residents.
Here are the GDPR requirements for safeguarding data:
- The controller and processor of data shall implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure data is protected while it’s being transferred, processed, and stored
- Data must be stored in the EU or within jurisdictions that have similar levels of data privacy
- Personal data should not be stored longer than necessary
- Access to data should be restricted to only those who have authorized access to the data
The European Commission describes personal information as any information that relates to an identified or identifiable living individual in the EU. Some examples of personal data include:
- Home addresses
- Email addresses
- Identification card numbers
- Location data (GPS)
- IP addresses
- Cookie IDs
- Data held by a hospital or doctor
What are the penalties for GDPR violations?
Fines for GPDR violations are categorized into two tiers.
For less severe violations, organizations can be fined up to 10 million euros, or 2% of their total global turnover of the preceding fiscal year, whichever is higher.
For more serious violations, organizations can be fined up to 20 million euros, or up to 4% of their total global turnover of the preceding fiscal year, whichever is higher.
