General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation, which has been in force since 25 May 2018, aims to create a homogenous framework for all personal data processing taking place in the European Union.

The main objective of this regulation is to ensure that personal data benefits from a high standard of protection everywhere in the EU, increasing legal certainty for individuals and organizations processing data and offering a higher degree of protection for individuals.

This regulation, although in direct line and in the philosophy of the previous laws on data protection, also introduces significant changes and obligations for the data controllers and processors.

Incorporating these elements in business-as-usual activities often requires an expertise in data protection matters coupled with a good understanding of the business, a double expertise that is not easily to come by within most organizations.
