What is GDPR?
The European Union (EU) issued the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in order to improve upon data privacy laws and influence the ways organizations manage data privacy. GDPR policy must be in place by May 25, 2018.
GDPR impacts all organizations located geographically within the EU, as well as those that are located outside of the EU if they collect, store, and/or manage data of EU subjects.
