Making a Submission: General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The EU GDPR requires companies that handle the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of EU citizens to implement a series of safeguards and processes developed to protect an individual’s privacy. 

Although the regulation was initially established in 1995, revisions that satisfy modern considerations were approved by the EU Parliament on April 14, 2016. Companies have until May 25, 2018, to prepare or potentially face significant fines.
