What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new regulation that requires all organisations that collect, store and handle the personal data of European citizens to fully comply with its requirements. It places responsibility on businesses and ensures they are accountable for protecting the data of their customers and employees. GDPR compliance is a must from May 2018 going forward.
If you process EU citizen data and are not GDPR compliant by 25th May 2018, you are liable to be fined up to €20m or 4% global turnover.
