GDPR determines circumstances for collecting, using, disclosing, retaining and processing personal data. Furthermore, it establishes the rights of the individuals and the requirements for implementing appropriate technical and organizational measures (TOMs), ensuring a level of data security corresponding to the risk of the data.
In case of a data breach, data protection authorities and affected individuals need to be informed within 72 hours following the discovery of a personal data breach resulting in the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alternation, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, personal data transmitted, stored, or otherwise processed.
