Several times a week I am seeing emails and even mailings relating to GDPR, European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation. As example, yesterday from Google Analytics I received a lengthy email that starts immediately with “Over the past year we’ve shared how we are preparing to meet the requirements of the GDPR, the new data protection law coming into force on May 25, 2018″.
If you reside in Europe, or do any part of information handling within the EEA (European Economic Area, you must abide to this regulation. According to many resources, this is the most aggressive personal data protections policy ever.
What are your thoughts on GDPR? Its effect on businesses that manage our data? How successful do you feel it will be long term?
