The European Union's General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are due to come into force in May 2018 with the aim of strengthening and unifying data protection for individuals across the EU. Whether your organization is based within the European Union or not, if you hold personal information of people who are, then you will need to ensure you are compliant or potentially face fines of up to 4% of your annual worldwide turnover, or €20 million, whichever is greater.
