1. What is GDPR ?

On May 25, 2018, the European Union (EU) will begin to enforce a new data protection regulation called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

  1. Who does it affect? 

The GDPR applies to organizations located within the EU in addition to organizations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behavior of, EU natural persons or ‘data subjects.’ It applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of data subjects residing in the EU, regardless of the company’s location.

The aim of the GDPR is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches. To learn more, click here
