The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive data protection and privacy regulation that came into effect in the European Union (EU) on May 25, 2018.
The GDPR applies to all EU member states and regulates the processing of personal data of individuals within the EU. It also applies to organizations located outside the EU if they offer goods or services to EU residents or monitor their behavior, thereby processing their personal data.
The GDPR is based on a set of core principles for the processing of personal data. These principles include lawfulness, fairness, and transparency in data processing, purpose limitation, data minimization, accuracy, storage limitation, integrity, and confidentiality.
Supervisory authorities in each EU member state are responsible for enforcing the GDPR. They have the power to impose fines and penalties for non-compliance, which can be substantial, depending on the severity of the violation. Organizations may face fines of up to 4% of their global annual turnover or €20 million, whichever is higher.
