Today marks the 2nd Birthday of GDPR’s implementation.
GDPR, General Data Privacy Regulation, has put personal data privacy to the forefront within the whole European Union and given European citizens the right to privacy.
It changed the way businesses use personal data. They now have to inform a user about how their personal data will be used. They also have to send a user all his/her personal data collected and remove it upon request.
There’s a long road ahead for most companies to comply with privacy laws, but GDPR is a brave step forward that already shows progress. At best, it could be a gold-standard piece of legislation that will inspire change in the tech industry for years to come.
