GDPR in Retail: From Zero to Compliance in One Week

GDPR is a fundamental shift in personal data ownership—and it's not just Europe. Falling like dominos, the adoption of similar privacy legislation is spreading. A case in point is the recently adopted California Privacy Act. And Canada, Japan, and Australia are implementing comparable legislation or updating their privacy laws to mirror GDPR.

The writing is on the wall: European protections pave the way for blockchain

Evolving regulations in privacy and data security are pressuring companies to accommodate user demands for control over their personal information.  The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents the largest change to European Union (EU) data protection laws in decades, and requires companies that do business in the region to provide increased protections for EU users.

SPINS and IntraEdge announced a preferred partnership to support the launch of GDPR Edge™, a blockchain-based solution powered by Intel®. The solution enables compliance for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into effect on May 25, 2018, and comes on the heels of the California Data Privacy act on June 28, 2018, which requires companies that collect quantities of consumer data to disclose what they collect and provide consumers the ability to opt out.

KEY COMPONENTS AND IMPACTS OF THE REGULATION

The Data Protection Officer (DPO)

Like any change initiative, the first step is to create a sense of urgency. The possibilities of large fines and a concrete launch date should hopefully achieve that. The next step is to identify a “champion” to lead the change. GDPR guidelines actually impose the need for a Data Protection Officer who is responsible for regulatory compliance and reports to the President or CEO. This responsibility can no longer be delegated to a mid-level manager within the IT or data science departments who the CEO can claim was not aware of any shortcomings around data governance. As of May 25th, it is clearly explained that responsibility lies within the C-suite.

WHAT IF THE GDPR DOES NOT APPLY TO ME?

Data Privacy and Trust Are Universal

Whether or not a company is legally bound to comply with the GDPR, businesses can still benefit from implementing a solution for transparency, notice and consent around consumer data handling. A company’s willingness to take these extra steps will build trust with their consumer base and set them apart from the competition that may be taking a wait-and-see approach. Complying out of duress will be a potential detriment for businesses trying to build a relationship of trust with customers.

ADVANTAGES OF COMPLIANCE

“While compliance is at the core of the GDPR, we are seeing a strong shift toward taking an active posture towards privacy from many leading companies as compliance isn’t enough. 

DOES THE GDPR APPLY TO MY COMPANY?

Before we explore the main tenets of the GDPR, let us first explore who needs to be concerned with these regulations. Charles Morgan, Partner and Technology Practice Lead at McCarthy Tetrault recently presented at a Canadian seminar on GDPR preparedness.
