The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new legal framework that will take effect on May 25, 2018. The purpose of the GDPR is to protect the privacy rights of individuals, and it will bring into effect strict global privacy requirements that will govern how organizations manage and protect personal data—regardless of where data is sent, stored, or processed.

The GDPR is a major change that affects how data relating to an individual should be handled and may impact every department across many businesses worldwide. It will not only affect companies, but also any individual, authority, agency, corporation, or other entity that processes the personal data of individuals based in the European Union. For a company, this may include any suppliers and other third parties that may process personal data.
