For many companies, GDPR has become a four-letter acronym.
The European Union’s new General Data Protection Rule – which applies to virtually any kind of data that can be used to identify a person – goes into effect May 25. And companies around the world are rushing to make sure they’re in compliance, or at least can demonstrate that they’re hard at work trying to meet the EU demands.
GDPR is designed to protect personal privacy, (hopefully) make companies more secure from data breaches and force them to get their collective hands around all the data they collect, use and distribute.
