• General Data Protection Regulation

A customized, proactive approach.

The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is far reaching – and fast approaching. The new regulation replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and goes into effect on May 25, 2018. It affects organizations in the EU or those that offer goods and services to individuals in the EU, or that collect and analyze data related to EU residents, regardless of their location. This is a nuanced and complex regulation that will impact nearly all businesses.
