GDPR essentials and how PwC can help
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force on 24 May 2016. This creates a new regulatory framework unifying data protection laws across the 28 European Union (EU) member states and replaces the prior EU Data Protection Directive. The GDPR imposes a radical data protection and privacy regulatory framework on Europe and the wider world for the processing of personal data of EU citizens. Although there is a transposition period of 2 years for countries and companies to get ready, there are many new and significantly enhanced requirements that organisations should take action on before the May 2018 deadline.
