The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced in April 2016, and becomes fully enforceable on 25 May 2018. If you haven’t already started your preparation for GDPR compliance – or still aren’t really sure what it is and what the implications are – you’re in the right place.
GDPR replaces the EU Data Protection Directive that has been in place since 1995, and requires an overhaul of data management that will give consumers greater privacy and protection. GDPR compliance applies to businesses and organisations within the EU that collect, store or share consumer data – and to any business or organisation in the world outside of the US that collects personal data from EU residents. In short, GDPR backup and GDPR disaster-recovery options will soon become a necessity – as of 25 May 2018, non-compliance will incur significant fines.
