GDPR for US Companies? Think it doesn't apply to you?
Published December 17, 2019 13:32
Maybe it does! The implications of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) for US companies who control or process the personal data of individuals located within the EU will be significant – and compliance is compulsory in nearly all cases.
The GDPR is a new EU data protection law that came into effect on May 25, 2018. The Regulation brings greater obligations on companies and organisations processing the personal data of data subjects in the European Union and gives those individuals or (data subjects in the legislation) more control over their personal data. A data subject is essentially under GDPR law a living individual within the EU whose personal data is being processed. A data subject within the legislation could also be a US citizen living or traveling to the EU.
