THE BOTTOM LINE
The European Union General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will preplace the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC on May 25, 2018. These new regulations will expand a company’s Personally Identifiable Information (PII) protection obligations, including how data is secured. An extensive process, this is not something that companies will be able to prepare for overnight. Yet, Nucleus has spoken to many companies who are either unaware of or unprepared for the approaching May 2018 deadline. Unlike the original directive, the GDPR does not require any legislation for implementation. It is directly applicable and binding to any company with European Union (EU) clients.
