GDPR and Privacy Counseling for Technology Companies

What Is GDPR?

General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is part of the European Commission’s plans for data protection reform in the European Union (“EU”).  Simply, GDPR increases the control that EU citizens have over their personal data, how it’s used and whom it is shared with and sets a higher standard for businesses to adhere to if they have access to personal data.

All organizations are expected to be compliant with GDPR by May 25, 2018.

Is My Business Impacted by GDPR?

Businesses that collect EU personal data need to comply with GDPR. Personal data is defined broadly, as described in our blog here, and obligations are dependent on whether the business is classified as a controller or processor.  We suggest you seek legal advice to assess any potential impact and determine what you need to do to ensure your business is compliant.

Contact our team today to speak with an attorney that specializes in GDPR to help you determine if your business is impacted by GDPR and, if so, what steps you need to take to ensure compliance.
