What is General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and What Does it Have to do With Me?
On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a new European law, went into effect. The GDPR is designed to protect EU citizens’ personal data from misuse. While it primarily applies to European Union (EU) countries, under certain circumstances it will also apply to many other countries, including the United States (US). Unlike preceding EU directives, this is an enforceable regulation and non-compliant companies can face stiff fines.
