What is GDPR
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation also referred to as Regulation (EU) 2016/679. GDPR replaces the existing protection directive that was introduced in 1995 and has been created by the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission to strengthen and unify data protection for all residents of the European Union.
Additionally, GDPR addresses data protection rules for personal data export outside of the European Union. It also enforces EU data protection laws to guide foreign organisations that process personal data pertaining to residents of the European Union.
