Surviving GDPR Means Success in New Internet Era

Effective from 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) imposed by the European Union (EU) is undeniably daunting and part of it is deliberately vague for online businesses to comply with. Generally speaking, the legislation empowers web users from the EU to opt out of having their data collected by websites or service providers, with hefty penalties for non-compliance.



To survive the GDPR data rules, businesses must prepare themselves with technology that can defend them against data breach, intrusion and service disruption. What’s more, once GDPR proves to be successful and effective in protecting personal data, the odds are that it will become a global standard for other jurisdictions to follow suit. This implies that overcoming this challenge will help you succeed in a new era in data protection heralded by GDPR.
