Now that a new year is upon us, we must remember that this is the year the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) supersedes Directive 95/36/EC. The new regulation will take effect May 25, 2018. In other words, this is the date by which organizations must be compliant. Primary obligations under GDPR GDPR applies to the processing of personal data of people in the EU by businesses operating in the EU. It’s important to note that GDPR doesn’t only apply to firms based in the EU—it applies to any organization providing a product or service to residents of the EU.
