The general data protection regulation:
Are you in control of personal data?
In April 2016, the European Economic Area (EEA) set in place the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will be effectuated in May 2018. This regulation affects all organizations that handle personal data within the EEA. To be compliant to the new regulation, each organization will have to put in place measurements with which they ensure GDPR requirements are fulfilled.
