The General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679), abbreviated to, and widely known as, the GDPR, was adopted by, and within the European Union (EU), with the aim of strengthening and unifying data protection for all individuals across the EU.
The GDPR is the biggest and most sweeping move in data and privacy measures of the past few decades, meaning that companies must completely reconfigure their way of doing business so as to bring themselves in compliance with the Data Protection and Privacy Scheme.
Companies are now required to put in place processes and mechanisms concerned with the collection, storage, security, and disclosure of data and information in compliance with their obligations under the GDPR.
Furthermore, because of the increased threat of cyber-attacks, attention is also focused on the prevention of such attacks as they pose a risk to privacy rights.
