Protect the rights of data subjects
The GDPR strengthens and expands the rights and freedoms of data subjects in order to give them full control over their personal data. In addition to the right of access, erasure and rectification, the GDPR creates new rights such as the right to data portability, the right to object to profiling, and the right to restrict processing.
In this sense, the GDPR does more than just protect personal data. It establishes and protects the rights of data subjects.
The goal is to give consumers/prospects/customers control over their personal data. This is a major challenge for organisations. It requires that their Data Protection Officer (DPO) respond appropriately to requests within the allotted time whenever data has been collected or processed. Failure to comply may result in complaints and/or fines levied by the national data protection authorities, especially if sensitive data is involved.
