The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the most important change to data privacy in 20 years, took effect on May 25, 2018.
The new regulation replaced the current data protection directive of 1995, and is truly democratizing data privacy. Its objectives are to give European citizens control over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business.
Although the regulation pertains to European data, the requirements outlined by the GDPR apply to all companies in all countries who handle data collected from residents of Europe.
Achieving compliance with this new regulation will not only protect your business from the penalties the GDPR permits regulators to levy, but will also ensure your business is taking integral steps to protect consumer data, retain customer loyalty, and uphold its reputation.
