GDPR came into effect on the 25th May 2018 and is not affected by the UK’s decision to leave the EU.
At Zuri Technologies, we provide a range of services to assist your business with meeting GDPR requirements.
GDPR will introduce fines for non-compliance of up to €20m or 4% of annual worldwide turnover, whichever is greater.
Who does GDPR apply to?
- It applies to all businesses operating within the EU.
- Any organisation collecting, storing and processing the personal data of EU residents is considered either a data controller or data processor.
- GDPR applies to both data ‘controllers’ and ‘processors’.

What is going to change?
The definition of personal data
A broader scope of the term, personal information is anything that contributes to or links to identifying an individual. This includes data such as name, identification number, IP address, metadata and much more.
GDPR requirements will apply if you process the personal data of EU citizens regardless of which country you are located in.
Risk based accountability
This will impact amongst other things, contracts, privacy notice obligations, risk assessment and record-keeping.
For both Data Controllers and Data Processors but particularly for Processors, they can now be held accountable and action taken against them.
How can we assist?
Our consultants begin by holding a GDPR Discovery workshop with you. This articulates the requirement obligations of GDPR as well as gain a shared understanding of current personal data your business keeps and how it uses the data. We then perform a comprehensive review of your existing compliance against GDPR.
Following this review, we then present back our findings in a clear business-level executive report highlighting the current compliance level, short-term recommendations, and a full high-level strategic roadmap for your business to achieve full compliance with GDPR.
