General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has brought a unifying set of information security regulations to the European Union. For many, this has required changes to their security policies, processes, and strategy. The compliance deadline of May 25th, 2018 has already passed. If you are not compliant by now, you are already behind but don’t panic. Abacode can help!

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents the most significant change to European data protection laws in over 22 years. Aimed at simplifying the regulatory environment for international businesses operating in the European Union or interacting with personal data of EU residents and citizens, the GDPR has been designed to create a unifying framework for the management of information and personal data within the EU.

As the GDPR is aimed toward protecting personal data of European citizens or residents, the GDPR focuses on having the correct governance, policies and practices, as well as intrusion detection, system monitoring, and reporting procedures in place.
