Why is the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) so important?

The GDPR is an EU regulation governing the processing of personal data by companies and public authorities. The regulation has been in force since May 25, 2016 and must be implemented by May 25, 2018. If companies fail to comply, fines of up to 20 million euros or 4% of the world‘s annual turnover are threatened.

GDPR affects all companies that process personal data. This includes, for example, names, customer data, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses or other data with which people can be identified
