NZ Herald 20 May, 2018
Many Kiwi businesses could be caught out by far-reaching new privacy laws about to take effect in by Europe, a computer science expert fears. In five days, the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law comes into force aiming to protect its citizens privacy and prevent data breaches.
It has worldwide effect - meaning New Zealand companies processing personal data of people residing in the union must also comply or face fines of four per cent of annual turnover or 20 million euros.
