General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, will overhaul how businesses process and handle data. In less than a year, Europe’s data protection rules will undergo their biggest changes in two decades. Since they were created in the 90s, the amount of digital information we create, capture, and store has vastly increased. Simply put, the old regime was no longer fit for purpose. The solution is the mutually agreed European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will come into force on May 25 2018.
