Evolution Industrial is GDPR-ready
Times have changed, and so must the law
The General Data Protection Regulation, generally referred to as GDPR, is the biggest compliance-related regulation to come along in many years. It is a new piece of EU legislation intended to harmonize data protection rulings across Europe, sweeping changes in everything from technology to advertising, medical science to banking.
GDPR finally comes into effect today May 25 2018 and applies to any company that uses data to offer goods and services or that uses certain data to track online behaviours within the EU, despite the company’s location. Surpassing the borders, GDPR now holds worldwide consequences, making it imperative for anyone in charge of processing or controlling personal data.
It is created as an update to the previous data-related laws that were initially ratified in 1995. Now, it is a wide-ranging piece of legislation with the new guidelines that represent a much better fit to the modern, technology-ruled environment.
