General Data Protection Regulation is here. Time to gear up
What is GDPR?
The GDPR, which went into effect on May 25, 2018, replaced the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive.
The GDPR lays out specific requirements for businesses and organizations who are established in Europe or who serve users in Europe. It:
- Regulates how business can collect, use, and store personal data
- Builds upon current documentation and reporting requirements to increase accountability
- Authorizes fines on businesses who fail to meet its requirements
