When the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018, it will represent the most comprehensive update to global data privacy regulations in decades. Its aim is to ensure businesses are transparent about, and accountable for, how they handle individuals’ information.

If they don’t comply, companies could be fined up to €20 million or 4 percent of global turnover, whichever is higher.
