General Data Protection Regulation

What is GDPR?

The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

GDPR comes into effect on 25 May 2018.

Who Does GDPR Affect?

The GDPR extends to anyone doing business in the EU. If you intend to do business with any of the 508 million people living in the EU, you need to review your business systems to ensure you comply.
