EUROPEAN UNION (EU)
GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)
The May 2018 entry of the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduced stronger rules on data protection.
According to the European Commission GDPR website, the new stronger rules on data protection mean people have more control over their personal data, and businesses benefit from a level playing field.
GDPR is having a significant impact globally as it has provided a standard framework for the transparency and requirements of businesses over personal data protection and privacy. GDPR also foreshadows standards likely to be adopted throughout the world.
