What are the GDPR compliance requirements?
The GDPR came into effect on May 25, 2018, replacing the previous Data Protection Act in the biggest overhaul of data protection legislation in over 25 years. The law introduced new requirements for how organizations process personal data, both in the EU and abroad.
Today, the GDPR requires that companies collecting data on citizens of EU countries adhere to strict rules regarding the protection of customer data. The GDPR defines its requirements and rights granted to EU citizens in a document containing 99 articles. While companies collecting and storing customer data from citizens in the EU are required to address each of the articles in order to achieve and maintain compliance, some of the articles have a greater impact on businesses than others.
