GDPR

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a new EU Regulation that significantly enhances the protection of the personal data of EU citizens and increases the accountability of organisations who collect or process personal data of EU citizens. It has come into force on 25th May 2018. The regulation built many requirements for data privacy and security, and adds harsher penalties for violations.
