On May 25, 2018, a European privacy law is due to take effect that sets a new global standard for privacy rights, security, and compliance. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC was basically formulated to simplify and blend 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. What this means to businesses is that it establishes strict global privacy requirements governing how you manage and protect personal data while respecting individual choice—no matter where data is sent, processed, or stored. GDPR will require significant changes by organizations all over the world.
