Currently, I'm strategy manager in a public sector organisation in Finland. I have  a 15 years experience of developing startups and SMEs and equally long experience as entreprenuer before that. Developing business skills and competitiveness in small and medium sized companies has always been an object of my interest.

Today, it is essential in almost every development project to develop also digital tools and services as well as presence in web and in social media. I believe, based on open source and enormous amount of voluntary work by it's active people, that Joomla! and the community offers a great platform to share information and best practises to everyone whose interested in developing business skills as well as utilize Joomla! and it's extensions on the road to success.

The Data Processor Role

Six months ago, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect. For the world - or at least businesses -  life didn’t end on the 25.05.18, neither have we seen massive amounts of fines given to small and medium-sized companies after that date. We are still more or less in the implementation phase of the regulation, learning to look at personal data processing in a new way. As webmasters or site administrators we also may have received a new role, even if we didn’t ask for it: the role of a data processor. This article is part of GDPR overview: Decrypting the regulation in series.
EU citizens will soon expect that their personal data will by default be processed more carefully, transparently and only for the purposes for which they provided their explicit consent. The General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) introduces many improvements to personal data protection. It doesn’t matter whether the service provider is physically located in EU area or not, or if the provided services are paid or free of charge. If the service is available to people within the EU and personal data is involved, the regulation shall be applied and personal data must be protected according to the GDPR.
