GDPR data security compliance: What does it mean for your club?

Recorded On: 01/11/2018

Have you started your preparations for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance? GDPR was recently ratified to strengthen and unify data protection for all European Union (EU) residents—whether their data resides in the EU or not. GDPR is applicable to almost every organization worldwide that collects or processes data on EU residents, including those not based in Europe and even those without any European operations.

Many private clubs underestimate the amount of EU data they hold, and therefore may not understand the potential effect of GDPR legislation. For example, EU resident data may be stored in everything from information technology (IT) systems and portable media devices to spreadsheets and email archives. Clubs must examine data privacy protocols for primary sources of data, as well as all other sources and forms, including club membership, employee and guest data.

The new GDPR rules will significantly disrupt how organizations store, manage and process personal data. Substantial financial penalties and reputational damage may be incurred for noncompliance, up to €20M or 4 percent of an organization’s global revenue, whichever is higher. Register today to:
