The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation that enforces strict data protection and governance protocols on businesses handling personal information of individuals belonging to the European Union (EU).
The regulation, passed by the EU parliament in May 2018, purports to give people (both customers and employees) more control over their personal data. Personal data includes anything, right from the name, address, phone number, and email ID to government ID, medical information, and the IP addresses of people belonging to the EU.
It is crucial to note that the GDPR applies even if a business does not operate under the jurisdiction of the EU, as long the data owner (customer) belongs to the EU.
