EU General Data Protection Regulation

EU General Data Protection Regulation

The countdown to GDPR compliance is on

In December 2016, the EU Parliament and Council finally agreed upon the EU General Data Protection Regulation, first proposed in 2012, to go into effect on May 25, 2018.

The GDPR offers a new framework for data protection with increased obligations for organizations, and its reach is far and wide. The GDPR is applicable to any organization—no matter where it resides—that handles the personal data of individuals within the European Union.

On this page, IAPP members will find relevant documents and expert analysis to help organizations determine if and how the GDPR will affect them.
