General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive privacy law enacted by the European Union (EU) in 2016 and enforced from May 25, 2018. It provides a unified framework for the protection of personal data of individuals within the EU territory and regulates the processing, storage, and transfer of such data by organizations.

The GDPR grants individuals greater control over their personal information, ensuring transparency and accountability from businesses and organizations that handle personal data. It outlines various rights for individuals, including the right to be informed, access, rectify, erase, restrict processing, data portability, object, and not be subject to automated decision-making. Organizations must obtain explicit consent, have clear data protection policies and procedures in place, and implement measures to ensure data security, notification of breaches, and privacy-by-design principles. Non-compliance can result in significant fines, reinforcing the importance of protecting individual privacy and securing personal data within the EU.
