General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an encompassing regulation and policy change that affects people, organizations, and governance.
This regulation protects fundamental rights and freedoms of natural persons and in particular their right to the protection of personal data.
GDPR should have come as no surprise as The European Union has a history of establishing privacy norms, oftentimes much stricter than surrounding nations.
Dating back to the 1980’s, the individual right to privacy versus the state’s need to collect information has been an ongoing issue, especially when that data is transmitted overseas.
The GDPR was first proposed in 2012, adopted in 2016, and came into effect as of 2018. The GDPR outlines a set of strict regulations, processing controls, and punishments if regulations are not met or followed through.
During this webinar, VerSprite’s privacy expert demystifies GDPR’s fundamental principles by breaking it down into the basics you need to understand GDPR compliance.
