The EU Parliament adopted the long awaited General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Apr 18, 2016

The EU Parliament adopted the long awaited General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The Regulation will have a considerable impact on all organisations based in the European Union that process personal data, but also on organisations based outside of Europe providing services to the European market.

The GDPR will most likely be published in the Official Journal of the European Union by June, and 20 days after publication the GDPR will enter into force.
