GDPR considers personal data to be any information relating to an identfied or identifiable natural person. Both data controllers (the data organisation that determines what, how and why personal data is processed) and data processors (any organisation processing data on a data controller’s behalf) are directly subject to, and required to comply with, the GDPR.

Those organisations must ensure their processing of personal data complies with the data protection principles and uphold the rights of the individual.

Companies that infringe the GDPR provisions (e.g. regarding the GDPR principles, the rights of the data subject, etc.) or fail to comply with the GDPR (for example by failing to notify a personal data breach or failing to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect personal data) will be liable for significant fines.
