The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – is a new EU regulation effective from May 2018. GDPR will replace the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC with the purpose of harmonizing privacy laws across Europe.
Compared to the old directive, the regulation imposes more stringent and clearer requirements on a number of points. The penalty of a breach of the regulation will be 4% of the organization’s total turnover, or a fine of up to 20 MEUR. Ensuring compliance with the new regulation will be comprehensive for most organizations, especially for organizations currently unsure of their processing of personal data.
