General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR is going to strengthen and unify data protection within countries under EU and also monitors export of personal data outside the EU.

The announcement of an agreement to finalize GDPR was made in December 2015 and following a vote by the EU parliament, the compliance deadline for GDPR was set for May 2018. The GDPR requirements, as well as the amount of internal collaboration that will be needed to address them, means organizations need to plan for compliance now.

The primary objective of the GDPR is to give citizens back control of their personal data.  Once GDPR takes effect it will harmonize previous and other data protection regulations throughout the EU.

The impact is not only restricted to EU but organizations originated all around the globe. US companies that deals with the data of countries and organizations under the EU need to comply with the requirements or the consequences are drastic.

In case of any discrepancy, authorities keeping the record of data should be informed and also the potential owner of breached records. The organization even can be fined up to 20 million euros or 4% of annual revenue.
