Ensuring data privacy and security is one of the toughest challenges faced by legal authorities in the digital era. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was first proposed in 2012 and approved by the European Parliament in 2016 to impose legal obligations onto all organizations that handle personal data or offer goods and services to EU data subjects. On May 25th, 2018 the GDPR came into effect compelling companies to be compliant with all legal requirements to protect the data privacy rights of all individuals.
