The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation implemented by the European Union in 2018 to enhance data protection and privacy for EU citizens. The regulation applies to any organization that processes personal data of EU citizens, regardless of where the organization is located.
The GDPR defines personal data as any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, such as a name, email address, or identification number. Under the GDPR, organizations must obtain explicit consent from individuals before collecting or processing their personal data. Individuals have the right to access, modify, or erase their personal data, and organizations must comply with these requests within a certain timeframe.
The GDPR also requires organizations to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure the security of personal data. Organizations must notify authorities within 72 hours of any data breach that affects personal data. Additionally, the GDPR imposes significant fines for non-compliance, which can be up to 4% of an organization's global annual revenue or €20 million, whichever is greater.
To comply with the GDPR, organizations must implement policies and procedures to ensure the protection of personal data. This includes appointing a Data Protection Officer, conducting data protection impact assessments, and implementing appropriate data security measures. Organizations must also ensure that their third-party vendors and service providers comply with the GDPR.
