The General Data Protection Regulation (EUR 2016/679) is a European Union regulation which has as its primary objective the harmonization and strengthening of the rights of citizens of the European Union in terms of protecting their privacy and their personal data. The Regulation was adopted on May 27, 2016, and comes into force on May 25, 2018.
While the basic motives and goals of the GDPR Regulation are very similar to the previous EU Directive 95/46 / EC, GDPR requirements have been further expanded and adapted to digitalization and online business trends. The commitment of the European Commission to achieve the GDPR's stated goals is also shown in the punishment provided for those who fail to comply with the provisions of the Regulation. Unlike the EU Directive 95/46 / EC, GDPR is directly applicable to all EU Member States without the need for additional local legislative frameworks.
Also, while GDPR on one hand gives to individuals greater rights on controlling their own personal data and on the ways in which they are used, for companies GDPR brings a whole range of challenges in terms of alignment both at the organizational and management level as well as at the technological level.
