GDPR Solutions for India based businesses
GDPR Auditing is a specialist GDPR Auditing, training and consultancy business based in the EU.

GDPR places restrictions on the transfer of personal data outside of the EEA. If you are a business based in India processing EU Citizens personal data then you will need to comply with the GDPR.
GDPR compliance for Indian business should be seen as a competitive advantage. As well as the potential fines and penalties for non-compliance, you risk losing business to your competitors.
What is the GDPR
In simple terms its a European law you will need to comply with if you are handling the personal data of EU citizens.
More formally – The General Data Protection Regulation is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union.
It applies to all Controllers and Processors, both inside and outside of the EU, processing personal data of EU citizens.
The GDPR came into effect on the 25 May 2018, if you are dealing with EU Personal Data then you need to comply.
If you process data on behalf of a client then you are likely to be a Data Processor.
Your clients should require you to be GDPR compliant and if not, they may choose to move to a provider that is.
Prospective clients will most likely be asking about your GDPR compliance status during their due diligence. If you are not compliant then you risk losing new business to your competitors.
If you provide services directly to EU nationals then you are a Data Controller as defined by the GDPR.
As a Data Controller you will need to comply with the GDPR and may also need an EU representative and an appointed Data Protection Officer (DPO).
