OverviewThe General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) ushered in a new era in global data privacy regulation and affects nearly all entities collecting and processing personal data of those residing in the European Union (EU). GDPR’s framework has reshaped the way in which businesses in today’s data-driven world acquire and manage personal information and also, plays an important role in the development of future data protection laws world-wide.
GDPR has a broad scope and the landscape of its privacy regulation is constantly evolving. For businesses and organizations that are impacted, a lack of transparency, inadequate information and lack of valid consent, could result in a violation of the GDPR’s requirements.
