As you all should be aware by now, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming into force 25th May 2018 in the EU. This new law means there will be mandatory regulations around data privacy and the collection and processing of personal data for any EU citizens. This legislation will impact not only companies in the EU but any company in the world that is processing the data of any EU citizen. If a company is found to be breaching this regulation, they can be fined up to €20 million or up to 4% of annual global revenue.
