The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in the European Union (EU) law that took effect on May 25, 2018.

It aims to give EU citizens more control over their data and simplify the regulatory environment for international businesses by unifying the regulation within the EU.

Key Principles of GDPR:

  1. Data Protection and Privacy: GDPR ensures that personal data is gathered legally and under strict conditions, while also protecting the data from misuse and exploitation.
  2. Consent: Organizations can only process personal data if they have a valid reason to do so, such as the consent of the individual.
  3. Data Breach Notifications: In the event of a data breach, organizations must notify the affected individuals and relevant data protection authorities within 72 hours.
  4. Right to Access: Individuals have the right to know whether their data is being processed, where, and for what purpose. They also have the right to receive a copy of their personal data, free of charge.
  5. Right to be Forgotten: Also known as “data erasure”, this allows individuals to request the deletion of their personal data when there’s no compelling reason for its continued processing.
  6. Data Portability: GDPR introduces data portability, allowing individuals to obtain and reuse their personal data for their purposes across different services.
  7. Privacy by Design: Organizations are encouraged to implement technical and organizational measures, from the earliest stages of the design process, to ensure that privacy is embedded into the deployment of new products and services.
  8. Data Protection Officers (DPO): Certain organizations are required to appoint a DPO to oversee data protection strategy and GDPR compliance.
