What is the GDPR?
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to take effect on May 25, 2018. This new regulation broadly affects all organizations, government agencies, and companies throughout the world that offers goods or services to people in the European Union, or that collect or use personal data tied to EU residents.
The GDPR brings in major changes from the current Data Protection Act, including a fundamental change to the way organizations manage personal data. All organizations will have changes to make in policy, processes and contracts, as well as in technical and organizational compliance measures. In some instances, those changes could be complex and significant. Essentially, the GDPR means that organisations will need to take a more proactive approach towards management of personal data and subsequent monitoring, and reporting.
