What is General Data Protection Regulation? The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals with the European Union (UN). It sets out the principles of data management and the rights of the individual, while also imposing fines that can be revenue-based for the organisation. As of 25 May 2018, all organisations are expected to be compliant with GDPR. GDPR regulation covers all EU citizens and countries, thus if your business and organizations involve dealing with EU countries or citizens, you are required to comply with GDPR requirement. In short, almost all companies that has dealing with EU to be GDPR compliant and work on their GDPR compliance strategy.
