GDPR and PDPA-compliance: What you need to know

More than one year has passed since the EU General Data Protection Regulation has been enacted. However, according to a survey conducted by the European Business Awards, a lot of businesses, including around 30% of European businesses are not yet compliant.

In July 2019, a British company has been fined a record sum of 230 million USD for non-compliance with the regulation. Understanding the implications of the regulation and implementing the organizational and technical planning necessary for compliance is vital also to Taiwanese companies doing business in Europe.

Lesser known yet highly relevant for business in Taiwan is the Taiwan Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA). The PDPA applies to all companies, individuals and public organizations doing business in Taiwan.

The German Trade Office is proud to work with our partner KPMG to provide a workshop to discuss implications of the GDPR and the PDPA as well as the necessary steps businesses can take to ensure compliance with the regulations.
