What is GDPR?
In May 2018, a European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is due to take effect. The GDPR imposes new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organizations that offer goods and services to people in the European Union (EU), or that collect and analyze data tied to EU residents. The GDPR applies no matter where you are located. Non-compliance with GDPR can result in fines of up to 4% of annual revenue or $20 million euros, whichever is greater.

Who is affected?
GDPR applies to all companies that have EU citizen personal information, which may come from employees, customers, or partners. The definition of personal information is broad and can include name, email address, social media posts, IP address, location, and more.
