What is GDPR?

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a set of new regulations introduced by the European Union which replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and offers improved control to users over their personal and private data. It is designed to empower EU citizens with improved data privacy, while reforming the approach of organisations towards data privacy.

It will be enforced from May 25th, 2018.

GDPR Outline

Data leaks have become a regular scenario today. GDPR aims to curb this by putting in place strict policies to regulate data collection and thereby the threat of leak. The main policy outlines are as follows.

  • No more collective consents. Consents will be applied individually under GDPR.
  • Data breaches should be reported by the organisation within 72 hours of the breach.
  • Increased user control over disclosed data. User can access data and find out where it is being used.
  • Users can transfer their data to different service providers.
  • Right to be forgotten, otherwise known as data erasure, where a user can stop dissemination and processing of his/her data by an organisation.
  • Data Protection Officer appointments for organisations that engage in monitoring subjects in European Union
