New Data Regulations in the European Union

In this whitepaper, you will learn about:

  • What obligations these other data regulations in the EU place on businesses;
  • Who enforces these regulations and their regulatory jurisdiction;
  • What penalties can be imposed on organizations in breach or non-compliance with these regulations?


The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is arguably the most well-known data regulation globally. It has served as the blueprint for several similar regulations since its enforcement in 2018. Since then, the EU has seen further regulations such as the Digital Markets Act, Digital Services Act, Data Governance Act, Data Act, European Health Data Space, and the proposed Artificial Intelligence Regulation, which address various aspects related to the processing of personal and non-personal data.

This whitepaper aims to elaborate on the additional obligations these regulations place on organizations, the penalties for non-compliance, and perhaps most importantly, the critical aspects that most organizations should be aware of to ensure compliance.

  • Lawfulness, fairness and transparency.
  • Purpose limitation.
  • Data minimisation.

In short, no. There is no small business exemption within the GDPR. Even if a company has 50 or less employees, it must comply with the GDPR.

The GDPR is comprehensive in addressing many data challenges. Many, but not all. These other regulations target various other aspects related to data collection, protection, storage, and the use of artificial intelligence among other areas. As a result, users in the EU will find themselves and their data much safer and secure online.
