With under a year to go until the enforcement date deadline of 25 May 2018, this is the time that those organizations in non-compliance will face heavy fines. Under GDPR organizations in breach of GDPR can be fined up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 Million (whichever is greater). There is a tiered approach to fines for example, a company can be fined 2% for not having their records in order (article 28), not notifying the supervising authority and data subject about a breach or not conducting impact assessment.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation replaces the Data Protection Directive and is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. GPDR makes its applicability very clear - it will apply to the processing of personal data by controllers and processors in the EU, regardless of whether the processing takes place in the EU or not.

GDPR is about creating a best practice data management strategy which gives an organisation the foundation for improving the way they conduct business using quality data, this is reflected in customer service initiatives, improved upselling and cross selling, digital transformation/channel shift and social service provision.
