In today’s interconnected world, data has become a valuable asset and with this increased reliance on data comes new legislation to protect individuals’ privacy and ensure responsible data handling practices.
Data, akin to a financial asset, requires stringent protection. Data Security encompasses the policies, methods, and means to safeguard both personal and non-personal data. On the other hand, Data Privacy pertains to using protected personal data.
In this blog, we will provide an overview of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the comprehensive legal framework implemented by the European Union (EU) to safeguard personal data as this is seen as the leading standard.
In simple terms, Evercam is the Data Processor and our Clients are the Data Controllers.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in the EU law that governs data protection and privacy. To ensure responsible data processing, the GDPR emphasizes several core principles:
The GDPR is a relatively new regulation representing a significant stride towards safeguarding individuals’ privacy rights in the digital era as countries within the EU continue to adjust their laws and learn to comply with them.
It is important for the Data Controller and Data Processor to clearly understand their roles to ensure the protection of personal data. Misunderstanding or blurring these roles could lead to non-compliance with GDPR, resulting in severe penalties.
At Evercam, we are committed to adhering to these roles and complying with GDPR requirements, ensuring that our client’s data is securely handled and their rights are respected throughout the process. We strive to keep our Clients informed about the latest developments relating to the intersection between reality capture and data privacy.
Our goal is to build trust between businesses and individuals, fostering a data environment that respects privacy and promotes transparency. Learn more about our commitment to data privacy and join our mailing list for updates.
