How to be in Compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation

If you do any business that could gather information from citizens of the European Union, you must make sure that your organization is in compliance or face hefty fines.

What is the GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation serves to protect several types of personal data including name, address, identification numbers, location and IP addresses, cookie data, and personal information (racial and ethnic data, health and genetic data, biometrics, political affiliations, gender and identity, etc.).

The European Union defines personal data as “any information that relates to an identified or identifiable living individual.

Regardless of how data is gathered, stored, or processed, it is protected by the GDPR.
