If your company does business in the European Union (EU) and collects personal data on EU citizens, then it’s very likely you’re familiar with the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR. You’re also probably aware of the importance of getting GDPR compliant in order to reduce the risk of receiving a fine, like the $847M fine Amazon received in 2021.
Even 4 years after GDPR went into effect, companies still struggle to achieve and maintain compliance with 30% of EU-based companies still not compliant due to complicated rules or lack of resources. Getting GDPR compliant should not be as hard or tedious as it is, with complicated legal requirements and unclear expectations.
That’s why Secureframe’s security compliance automation platform now supports GDPR to help companies get and maintain GDPR compliance quickly and securely. We make the compliance process clear by providing procedures and policies vetted by GDPR experts, proprietary GDPR training for automatic employee compliance, access to in-house experts, and everything else you need to get compliant in weeks. We also stay up-to-date on the latest GDPR regulations for you, so you can focus on what matters most…serving your customers and growing your business.
GDPR was established to address growing concerns from private citizens about the amount of personal data being collected about them and how that data was being used. GDPR requires data processors and controllers that target or collect personal European Union (EU) resident data to uphold various privacy and security requirements. This applies to any company, both based in the EU as well as companies outside the EU. Any company that collects personal data about EU residents is subject to the law.
Organizations that fail to comply with GDPR can be fined up to €20m or 4% of their annual revenue for the previous fiscal year, whichever amount is greater.
Some examples of GDPR compliance requirements include:
Whether you are a data processor, data controller, or both, we can make the process of achieving and maintaining continuous GDPR compliance fast and easy.
