GDPR is your business

In May 2018, a European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), went into effect.
The GDPR imposes new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organizations that offer goods and services to people in the European Union (EU), or that collect and analyze data tied to EU residents. The GDPR applies no matter where you are located.

Key changes under GDPR

The impact of the GDPR is straightforward. It’s all about putting individuals’ rights and freedoms at the centre of data protection. That translates into something simple. On the one hand, increased privacy rights and protections for individuals. On the other strengthened obligations of businesses towards them.
