The Essential Guide to GDPR
(General Data Protection Regulation)
The continued digitization of the world economy brings with it the increasing reliance on the processing of personal data. While it provides tremendous opportunities for business growth and consumer benefits, it accompanies the importance of protecting personal data.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) triggers the most significant changes to EU data privacy regulation in 20 years. The regulation was ratified in April 2016 and will be effective in May 2018. It aims to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world that is vastly different from the time in which the 1995 directive was established.
