The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced to the EU in May 2018. GDPR has six primary principles that set out the obligations for businesses and organisations that collect, process and store individuals personal data. 

  1. Lawfulness, fairness and transparency
    You must process personal data lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject.
  2. Purpose limitation
    You must only collect personal data for a specific, explicit and legitimate purpose. You must clearly state what this purpose is, and only collect data for as long as necessary to complete that purpose.
  3. Data minimisation
    You must ensure that personal data you process is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to your processing purpose.
  4. Accuracy
    You must take every reasonable step to update or remove data that is inaccurate or incomplete. Individuals have the right to request that you erase or rectify erroneous data that relates to them, and you must do so within a month. 
  5. Storage limitation
    You must delete personal data when you no longer need it. The timescales in most cases aren’t set. They will depend on your business’ circumstances and the reasons why you collect this data.
  6. Integrity and confidentiality
    You must keep personal data safe and protected against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures. 

Complying with GDPR when data is stored in legacy formats (paper, single view file structure etc) creates challenges and ultimately compliance failures.
