What is GDPR? GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It’s a massive, new regulation impacting data protection and privacy for all people in the European Union. GDPR goes into effect 25 May, 2018.
Who is impacted? Every company that does business with anyone in the European Union is required to be compliant. Even if you don’t have an office or employees in the E.U., having so much as one website visitor or one client from the E.U. in your database means your business needs to be complaint.
What if my business isn’t compliant? There are serious risks. GDPR regulations state that fines of €20 million, or 4% of their worldwide annual revenue (whichever is higher) can be applied to businesses that are in violation of the law.
