What is GDPR?
Born out of cybercrime threats, technology advances, and concerns about data misuse, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is not just one of many other data protection frameworks or requirements. GDPR is a mandate that impacts how organizations market, collect, process, use, and store EU data subjects’ personal data, giving consumers more say over what companies can do with their data. This regulation is standardizing data protection rules worldwide. Regardless of their location, companies that collect or process the personal data of EU data subjects must comply with GDPR.
