As my colleague Jos already described in his blog, the new GDPR-regulation is of great importance for all organisations across the board. Especially for contract managers in the field of IT and their colleagues within that sector, the affirmation of this regulation has many implications on their daily jobs in making sure the organization adheres to it. This blog aims to give a more in-depth view of the implications specifically for the contractmanager and procument personnel.
On 25 May 2018, the current law ‘Wet bescherming persoonsgegevens’ (Wbp) will cease to exist and will be succeeded by the ‘Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming’ (AVG), also known as the ‘General Data Protection Regulation’ (GDPR).
Some topics regarding protection of personal data will change as will the consequences of law infringement. This blog describes in short the legislation, the consequences of breaking the law and also provides some touchpoints to mitigate risks in contracts.
