General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) resources
GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, was Europe’s answer to the growing trend for massive IT companies such as Facebook and Google to misuse personal data for lucrative results. Complex end user agreements, no-opt outs and misuse of personal data led to increased awareness of the power of big IT.
GDPR therefore put the onus on organizations to keep the data secure, to provide opt-outs and transparency for how the data is used. GDPR imposes large fines for organizations which fail to comply.
