What should I know about this?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a set of regulations that member states of the European Union must implement in order to protect the privacy of digital data. The regulation was passed in April 2016 and came into effect on May 25, 2018. All businesses that process or store the personal data of EU citizens must comply with the GDPR.
There are two main ways to become compliant with the GDPR: self-regulation and certification. Self-regulation is when a business implements its own policies and procedures to ensure compliance with the GDPR. Certification is when a business has its compliance verified by an independent third party.
There are many benefits to becoming compliant with the GDPR, including improved customer trust, increased security, and peace of mind. There are also some drawbacks, such as the cost of compliance and the risk of non-compliance.
