What is GDPR?
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is an EU-wide law that came into effect on 25th May 2018. It’s designed to strengthen data protection for individuals and provide better protection for their rights. The GDPR consists of 83 articles, 8 recitals, and 2 appendices that establish standards for fair and transparent processing of personal data by companies in the EU member states. The GDPR also applies to the processing of personal data by non-EU companies in certain circumstances.
Companies that are established or want to deal with any of the EU member states will be required to comply with GDPR principles from 25th May 2018 onwards. These will apply to all data processors irrespective of the location of their processing activities.
Why is GDPR important?
GDPR as a framework is considered as a global standard widely across the cyber and cyber security industry. It is majorly focused and framed by clarifying terms of European data protection. Its formation was done particularly to acknowledge the rights and regulation of online population in Europe. All the companies that deals with the clientele based from Europe, have to comply with the rules of GDPR so that they can become eligible for the trade (by EU law). This data protection is also important as other companies can’t exploit their European consumers in order to collect and sell data. The threat of heavy penalties on violation of GDPR also limits the companies to use data for malicious intents.
