At Status.io, we always treat personal data with care and respect. We’re embracing the spirit of the GDPR and have been looking at how we can improve the security and protections of personal data.
Below we’re sharing some resources to help you better understand the GDPR and how it can affect your organization.
What is the GDPR?
The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the EU National Data Protection legislation and is due to take effect in May 2018. The GDPR is a new regulation to protect personal data of EU citizens. It affects all organizations (even outside of the EU) that process data of EU citizens.
There is plenty of information available from the EU Commissioner’s Office to understand the GDPR. We recommend starting with the the Guide to the GDPR and “Preparing for the GDPR – 12 steps to take now”.
