Compliance is difficult, we get that. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or confused, we’re here to help you make sense of your compliance responsibilities.

Here are the top three things you need to know about GDPR compliance:

  1. What constitutes personally identifiable information (PII) has been expanded: Under the GDPR, user’s IP addresses and cookie data are considered to be as sensitive as the usual names, addresses, and social insurance numbers. All data collected must be subject to strict security protocols.
  2. The data protected is much more extensive than before: In addition to IP data and personal information, you must protect health and genetic data, political opinions, sexual orientation, race and ethnicity, and any other information solicited or given.
  3. Regulations include vague, misleading wording that leaves room for error: This is often the most difficult part of ensuring compliance. For example, the GDPR states that “reasonable” levels of data protection must be in place, but there is no definition of what “reasonable” looks like.
