Understand the GDPR guidelines for obtaining lawful consent to process data

The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designated to become effective and enforceable on May 25, 2018, and just about every business, ready or not, will have to deal with the consequences of noncompliance after that date. The penalties for failing to meet the standards outlined by the GDPR can be severe and should not be ignored or shrugged off by any business enterprise.

One of the more significant principles of the GDPR is the concept of consent. Data subjects, the people providing the personal data that needs to remain protected, must clearly consent to the processing of their data. That may seem reasonable, but obtaining consent can be more complicated than you might think. Consent can be given in more than one form and compliant enterprises will have to know, and more important, account for, the different forms.
