The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is considered one of the most stringent privacy and security laws in the world. The regulation came into effect on May 25, 2018. It was drafted by the European Union (EU).
In today’s data-centric world that is marred by constant data breaches and personalization of the web, individuals have been left wondering how their data is used and misused. GDPR can be best thought of as a legal framework to enforce effective, and practical data protection for personal data.
