::/Data Security & GDPR
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive data protection law that took effect in the European Union (EU) in May 2018. It applies to any company that processes the personal data of EU citizens, regardless of where the company is based. The GDPR sets out strict rules for how companies must handle personal data and sensitive information and give individuals the right to control their own data and to know how it is being used.
Some key provisions of the GDPR include:
- The right to be informed: Individuals have the right to be informed about how their personal data will be used, including for what purposes, who it will be shared with, and how long it will be retained.
If a company is found to be in violation of the GDPR, it can face heavy fines and other penalties. It is important for companies to take the GDPR seriously and to ensure that they are fully compliant with its requirements.
