PECB Store GDPR Assessment Notice

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

 

The General Data Protection Regulation has replaced the EU Data Protection Directive since May 25, 2018. The aim of the GDPR is to unify the data protection laws across the union. The EU parliament approved the publication of the General Data Protection Regulation, proposed by the European Commission, for the protection of fundamental rights of natural persons with regard to the processing of data. 

 

The protection of personal and organizational data is ever crucial in a constantly growing cross border market environment. The General Data Protection Regulation requires safeguards and measures for protecting personal data, ensuring safe data processing and managing notifications of potential breaches. The need for safeguards and measures that enable security of personal data is expected to constantly increase; organizations are required to comply with the regulation to ensure the protection of the fundamental rights and freedoms of the natural persons in regard to the processing of personal data.
