The GDPR has been in force since May 2018 as an EU-wide set of regulations and must be applied. Companies without principal office in EU-countries, but who collect and compute personal data from EU-citizens, are required to follow the GDPR rules.
Violations are punishable up to $20 Million or 4% of worldwide sales.
Since the penalties for data protection violations have been drastically increased, a foundational understanding of the GDPR is necessary in order to prevent serious financial damage, not to mention a potential loss of your company’s reputation.
