Some companies are already worried about what will happen with these new rules.
It promises to be a headache for companies despite only entering into force in May 2018. The new General Regulation on Data Protection will have new rules that affect almost all sectors of activity.
At a time when almost everything we do and buy involves personal data, this new regulation protects consumers’ privacy and that is why many companies are already concerned about this. Daniel Reis, a PLMJ lawyer and specialist in telecommunications and information technologies, explained to TSF a few days ago that he is contacted almost every day by companies that do not know how to interpret the new rules.
Basically, companies will have to respect a series of rules to guarantee the security of their clients’ personal data and say what they intend to do with that information in a much more restricted way than the one that exists today.
Having a database, as we have already mentioned in other articles, is one of the most important things for a company, but it is also very sensitive and must be treated with great care.
