With all the hype about May 25, many organisations are seeing the date as a GDPR deadline. But it’s not.

If you're in any doubt about whether the processing of personal data you do is within the parameters of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) then you should carry out a DPIA because the penalty for not doing so – when it’s appropriate to – is a €10-million fine, or 2% of annual global turnover, whichever is greater.
