The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) protects European Union data subjects’ fundamental right to privacy and the protection of personal data. It introduces robust requirements that will raise and harmonize standards for data protection, security, and compliance.
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new European privacy law due to become enforceable on May 25, 2018. The GDPR will replace the EU Data Protection Directive, also known as Directive 95/46/EC, and is intended to harmonize data protection laws throughout the European Union (EU) by applying a single data protection law that is binding throughout each member state.
