General Data Protective Regulation (GDPR)

What does GDPR mean?

GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Regulation. It is a set of rules that dictate the way companies handle personally-identifiable information and other sensitive data belonging to citizens of European Union (EU) member states beginning in May 2018.

How is GDPR compliance determined?

If an organization is based in the EU or if they do business with citizens of EU member state, they are required to comply with the GDPR. Organizations that store and directly use EU customer information might be required to encrypt personal data, participate in ongoing reviews of security measures, use redundancy and backup facilities, and enforce regular security testing. If your business deals with data provided by another company you may be required to comply with GDPR too. Noncompliance can lead to fines up to a greater amount of 20 million euros or 4% of the business's worldwide turnover from the previous year.
