What is GDPR?
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. GDPR is the core of Europe’s digital privacy legislation, which became law in the European Union on May 25, 2018.
GDPR introduced new obligations to data controllers (who own the customer relationship) and data processors (who handle data on the controller’s behalf), including those which are based outside the EU. GDPR is designed to:
- Harmonize data privacy laws across Europe
- Protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy
- Reshape the way organizations across the region approach and handle data privacy.
