What is the GDPR, and why is it important?

The GDPR is a regulation put into place by the European Union (EU) as a replacement for the Data Protection Directive. The core purpose is to create a single regulation to safeguard EU citizens’ fundamental right to data protection. The GDPR is coming into effect at a time when consumer sentiments for greater data protection are growing.

Failure to comply with the GDPR has significant financial repercussions; fines for minor infringements are the higher of €10M or 2% of revenue, and major infringements are the higher of €20M or 4% of revenue.
