Do I need to implement the GDPR? is a common question. To find out if you need to implement the GDPR, answer the questions. If you still are not sure, we can perform a GDPR readiness or current state assessment against our GDPR framework benchmark model.
All questions are taken from GDPR Articles 2 and 3 - Material and Territorial scope .
The GDPR must be implemented by any organisation based in the EEA. It must also be implemented by any organisation outside the EEA that processes data belonging to individuals inside the EEA. Processing scope covers the offering of goods or services (free and paid) and monitoring behaviour that takes place within the EEA.
