Organizations that control or process personal data from the European Union, even if operating from or outside the European Union, must comply with Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation that protects the fundamental right to privacy of EU citizens. This law is not just limited to companies providing financial services. This law standardized the practices of lawfully collecting, processing, and storing EU citizens’ and residents’ personal data, and is applicable even to companies that have business arrangements with businesses that work with such sensitive data. A personal data breach can cost companies dearly.

What Exactly is Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
The General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR is a privacy law created by the European Union (EU) in May 2018 to safeguard the privacy and data of its residents by improving and unifying the way organizations (both data controller and data processors) collect, store, process, and handle personal data. The regulation is applicable on every business operating anywhere across the EU region or is associated with any organization that is operating in any of the EU member states.
Why does your organization need to be GDPR compliant?
Considered to be the toughest data protection regulation, GDPR puts your consumers in the driver’s seat as the law confers and upholds the 8 basic data rights of an individual. As the regulation empowers business prospects and consumers with their rights over their personal data, it becomes crucial for every business to become GDPR compliant to avoid harsh penalties for non-compliance, ensure data safety, protect the business’ reputation, and avoid any cost of damage control.
However, the GDPR regulation is not all doom and gloom. It comes with a slew of advantages as well. First, it will establish your brand’s reputation as a responsible custodian of consumer's personal data, boosting their confidence in your brand. Next, it holistically improves your organization’s information security as the mandate utilizes privileged and identity access management. The mandate also significantly reduces maintenance costs and aligns your organization with the latest technology improvements, enabling greater decision-making.
