The GDPR defines a statutory requirement to manage personal information and enable data in EEA to be legally transferred to outside the continent.
The GDPR will apply on the 25th of May 2018. “It provides for very severe sanctions against controllers or processors who violate data protection rules. Data controllers can face fines of up to €20 million or 4% of their global annual turnover. These administrative sanctions will be imposed by the national data protection authorities.” (European Council: http://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/policies/data-protection-reform/data-protection-regulation/)
Appropriate solution to GDPR is essential for organisation conducting business globally.

Following the implementation phase of the appropriate solution, IIJ will continue to support your organisation to further develop an effective managing system, in order to continuously comply with the GDPR.
