On May 25, 2016 the new European Data Protection Regulation came into force, but it will not be applied until 2 years later, that is, on May 25, 2018. Until then, both Directive 95/46 and the regulations National laws, such as the well-known LOPD (Law 15/999), are still fully valid and applicable and must be complied with to avoid being penalized.
This period of 2 years until the application of the European Data Protection Regulation has as its objective to allow the States of the European Union, the European Institutions and also the organizations that process data to be prepared and adapted by the time the Regulation is applicable. .
That is why it is recommended that all companies start preparing the application of these measures as soon as possible. The advantage of starting to apply the changes is that it will detect difficulties, insufficiencies or errors at a stage when these measures are not mandatory and, consequently, their correction or effectiveness would not be subject to supervision. This would make it possible to correct errors by the time the European Data Protection Regulation is applied.
With this talk we intend to explain to the companies what are the main changes of the new European Regulation of Data Protection and guide them in the adaptation process detailing what they should do and how we can help them from a legal point of view.
