The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents the maturation of European Union (EU) privacy law and provides a benchmark for all other privacy legislation. GDPR provides privacy rights for EU citizens so that they can control the use of their personal information by businesses, organizations, and governments. This regulation has worldwide implications as most organizations that have EU citizen data need to comply with its provisions.
The law was effective April 25, 2018, and provides for significant fines for non-compliance, up to €20M or 4% of global revenues. The legislation defines responsibilities via 99 articles that detail the specific responsibilities of organizations to support the data privacy, consent, and rights of EU citizens.
