What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a Data Protection Regulation that takes effect throughout the EU on May 25, 2018. It replaces the 1995 Data Protection Directive and all national privacy and security laws that previously existed within the EU with a single, comprehensive EU-wide law that governs the use, sharing, transfer and processing of any personal data that originates from the EU. Based on the Data Protection Directive, the GDPR strengthens existing laws in certain respects, including breach notification, has higher fines for non-compliance and data loss, and provides for greater individual control on how personal data is handled.
