AMI recently conducted a survey of 137 senior IT decision-makers throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland, with the aim of gaining an insight into organisations’ approach to disposing of end-of-life IT assets. The results highlight a number of interesting findings, including the fact that a significant number of Irish companies are leaving themselves open to huge GDPR fines.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to come into force in just over a year’s time, on 25th May 2018. GDPR is one of the most important pieces of legislation to affect companies whose core business involves processing data.
Those found to be non-compliant could face fines of up to €20 million or 4% of global turnover, depending on which is greater. With such significant penalties, it’s no surprise that organisations are already working to meet the requirements outlined in the regulation.
