The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a piece of EU legislation regarding data protection and privacy online. GDPR brings all EU countries in line in how they protect the data and privacy of their citizens and is one of the most important laws to come out of Europe in recent years.
Any business that is either established in the EU, or sells goods or services to EU citizens (or processes their data), must comply with the rules set out under GDPR. GDPR doesn’t just cover how companies process data, but how that data is stored and exchanged.
Organisations that are subject to GDPR must be able to demonstrate that they are following the regulations and that the data in their possession is secure. For many companies, this means either updating or completely overhauling how they do business, both on paper and online.
As GDPR is such a huge piece of regulation, keeping up to date on all of the rules can be difficult. However, if an organisation fails to comply, they can face a fine of up to €20 million or 4% of their global annual turnover.
