GDPR- Reg. EU No. 679/2016: also known as General Data Protetion Regulation, the European Regulation is the n. 679/2016 of the European Parliament and of the Council, approved on 27 April 2016. It concerns the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (Gen-eral Data Protection Regulation). For several aspects it includes the IT and the digital Security, which are fundamental in order to protect personal data.
10 August 2018 the Council of Ministers defined the Decree No. 101 and 4 September 2018 this has been published on the Official Journal (of the Italian Republic).
This implementing law has introduced several criminal penalties in case of:
1) Unlawfully communication or diffusion of personal data on large- scale;
2) Illegal acquisition of personal data on large- scale;
3) False communications to the Italian Data Protection Authority;
4) Interruption of duties and activities of Italian Data Protection Authority;
5) Non- compliance with decisions of Italian Data protection Authority.
Certainly these provisions influence the IT Security standards and procedures of European companies and organisations.
