The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is far reaching – and is the most rigorous new privacy law in 20 years. The new regulation replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and 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 impacts nearly all businesses.
