The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is one of the biggest transformations to global data privacy law within the past 20 years. Businesses and organizations will prepare for the requirements which will soon be imposed through the enactment of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) before 25 May 2018.
Companies and public governments will need to comply with GDPR if you process personal data in the context of selling products or services to citizens in EU countries as well the UK. If your company operates outside the EU but offers products and services or even monitors the behavior of EU data subjects you will need to comply with GDPR.
Taking effect in May of 2018, the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will require global organizations to control, process and protect the personal data of EU citizens at a much higher level than they do today.

Who will be affected by the GDPR?

Compliance with the GDPR is vital: the legislation provides for severe administrative sanctions against controllers or processors who violate data protection rules. Organizations can face fines of up to €20 million or 4% (whichever is greater) of their global annual turnover for intentional or negligent violations.
