The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - What You Need To Know


On 25th May, 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforced. The goal of this legislation is to provide a strong, unified data protection framework across all EU member states. The GDPR is devoted to individuals’ privacy rights and the organisational controls required to protect those rights.

Wait a second – GDPR is an EU regulation, so why should you care? Do companies outside the EU need to worry about complying with a European law? The answer in many cases is YES. Keep reading and we will tell you why.


  • What is GDPR?

The goal of this EU legislation is to improve consumer confidence in the businesses that hold and process their data. GDPR compliance is required when handling personal data from Europe. As such, it will have far reaching impact on everyone conducting business in the EU area. The GDPR replaces the existing patchwork of national data protection legislation and brings a long-awaited, consistent approach to the European data protection landscape, with regard to individuals’ rights and companies’ obligations for collecting and processing personal information, especially with the use of digital solutions. 

GDPR requirements. No vendor can guarantee GDPR compliance, and no single vendor can do it all. And no product or service is certified as “GDPR compliant,” no matter what some vendors might say.
