GDPR & DATA PROTECTION CONSULTANTS
Protecting your business is our business!
GDPRXpert is here to help you navigate through the maze of new elements introduced by the GDPR and the ePrivacy Regulations. GDPRXpert specialises in data protection advice and consultancy, with a strong focus on the General Data Protection Regulation, and the ePrivacy Regulations (S.I. No.336 of 2011), under which the old ePrivacy Directive , 2002/58/EC, was transposed into Irish law. The Law Enforcement Directive (LED) is a very specific piece of EU legislation that is parallel to the GDPR but lies outside its direct scope. Personal data processing for law enforcement purposes is properly scrutinised through the lens of the LED, as primarily transposed into Irish law through Part 5, Data Protection Act 2018. Such processing lies outside the scope of the GDPR. However, in the case of disputes and doubts much will be interpreted in light of the GDPR, especially the GDPR principles.
In particular, since the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the data protection regulatory landscape has been irrevocably altered. A seismic shift has taken place because of the increase in the obligations and responsibilities now placed on many organisations. At the same time, the rights of the general public in relation to the processing of personal data have been strengthened.
You must be processing personal data to be subject to the GDPR. If this is the case , organisations involved in the processing of that personal data now have a higher burden of obligations and responsibilities. Since May 2018,processing of personal data in the context of certain electronic communications ( including , amongst other things,unsolicited electronic communication made by phone, e-mail and SMS) is subject to both the general laws set out out in the GDPR, and the more specific laws of the ePrivacy Regulations. The new EU ePrivacy Regulation is still pending but is unlikely to come into effect before 2021 as negotiations on the draft text are ongoing.
Our expertise lies in translating all of these complex legal and regulatory requirements into cost effective and practical operational solutions for your business or organisation. The ultimate goal is compliance with all of the new regulatory requirements and data protection principles. In order for you to reach that goal, GDPRXpert will ensure you meet all the transparency and accountability criteria.

GDPR AND YOU
Maybe your organisation does not process any personal data?
The definition of ‘personal data’ has been expanded under the new Regulation and now covers: …“any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person(‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”. ( Art. 4(1), GDPR)
Maybe your organisation does process personal data?
This new definition of personal data covers many different types of personal data. If your organisation processes such data then you are subject to new responsibilities and obligations under the GDPR.
GDPRXpert is cognisant of these robust new obligations and responsibilities, and especially their positioning in the new data protection architecture. With a background in law, business and data protection, GDPRXpert is ideally qualified to offer professional advice in this complex area. Once it is clear that your organisation is processing personal data, the prudent thing to do is seek that expert advice. GDPRXpert is here to ensure that you and your organisation are processing that data in accordance with data protection principles, are transparent and accountable, and are compliant with all aspects of the new Regulation.
