The EU's new data protection laws took effect May 25, 2018. Make sure your organization is aware of the potential impact, including hefty fines, and ensures GDPR contract compliance.
If it seems there has been a flurry of privacy updates and more talk around GDPR contract compliance, it’s for good reason. GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has actually been around since 2016, replacing the old data privacy laws that have found themselves outdated. Once it was recognized, it became mandatory that all companies ensure that they are fully compliant and meeting standards within two years. From May 25th of this year on, the rules and regulations set forth by the GDPR law are being followed accordingly.
What is Sarbanes-Oxley?
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) was an act that was passed in 2002 by the United States Congress to help protect investors from the likelihood of fraudulent accounting activities that were being done by different corporations. News had spread that corporate officials were filing misleading information about their financial statements and handing them over to their accounting firms after the well-known scandals. The firms that they were handing them over to were firms that they had a tight-knit relationship with and knew they would do them some favors. SOX was implemented to help standardize the accounting and contract management professions and turn bad back into good.
