GDPR Compliance and Cybersecurity

What is GDPR and what does it mean for your business? In May 2018, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, EU 2016/679) replaced the 95/46/EC Data Protection Directive, being the first comprehensive and overarching privacy law in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). It provides individuals with enforceable rights to control how their personal data is being processed, used and shared by companies, organizations and public sector. GDPR is a holistic and complex law, composed of 99 articles and 173 recitals.
