Data privacy rules have never been easy to follow. European Union’s Schrems II decision has made data transfer from EU to non-EU countries more complicated than before. The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) rules have added to the confusion. So, organizations cannot rely on complying with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) only. How do you navigate through this maze of rules and regulations? In this article at Forbes, Mark Cockerill shares some of the ways you can maneuver through these data privacy rules.
Complicated Data Privacy Rules
Though the data privacy rules look quite convoluting now, Cockerill discovers a positive perspective to it. According to the author, “the more complex it becomes, the simpler the questions.” Here are ways to make it easier to comply with these data privacy rules:
Try or Not to Try
Do you want to adapt to the data privacy rules now? Or do you want to see how others adjust to them and then start the compliance process? If you wait, you might have to make faster changes in a short time frame. So, instead of delaying compliance, why do you not stay on top of the laws and regulations? This increases customer trust and regulatory reputation support.
Once you comply with the new data privacy rules, you will have options to provide for your EU customers. They can manage their individual data for EU-based services. Though following these EU rules can be inconvenient and costly, your business will earn a reputation for focusing on customer experience and compliance.
Benefits of Adherence
- By obliging to the data privacy rules, EU customers can comfortably leverage your services. Furthermore, you will have a better contingency pipeline and can update changes whenever required.
- Your customers would want you to safeguard their data as if it is your own. No matter the changes in regulations, they must know that they can trust you and your services with their information.
- The majority of the companies are undergoing or contemplating digital transformation. By directing your efforts in maintaining digital privacy rules, you will empower customers with a readymade and scalable compliance service infrastructure.
