Navigating Data Protection: The Implications of GDPR for Digital Onboarding in Financial Services
Since its introduction in 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been reshaping the way businesses handle personal data across the European Union (EU). For the financial services sector, where data handling is a daily operation, GDPR’s impact has been significant, especially in the realm of digital onboarding. Here’s an overview of what you need to know.
At its core, GDPR is designed to protect the personal data of EU citizens. It grants individuals several rights, including the right to access their data, the right to be forgotten, and the right to data portability. For businesses, this means implementing robust data protection measures and transparency practices.
GDPR and Digital Onboarding
In the digital onboarding process, financial service providers collect, process, and store vast amounts of personal data. Under GDPR, these activities must be conducted in a compliant manner. From obtaining clear consent to implementing strong data security measures, every aspect of the onboarding process must uphold the principles of the GDPR.
