The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a regulation designed by the European Commission to create a uniform mandate for every EU/EEA member state on the protection of personal data held by an organization in the event of a data breach.
The current set of regulations found throughout the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) is derived from a directive that was commissioned in 1995 and was designed to be interpreted and formed within the national contexts of individual EU/EEA member states. The new law is not a directive but a regulation that mandates all EU/EEA countries adhere to the same uniform law throughout the union, though some minimal level of variation may still exist within localized national contexts. The GDPR is meant to align privacy laws throughout the European Union and protect the personal data of its residents at home and abroad. As a globally active organization, Therefore Corporation welcomes the new regulation as a step in the right direction towards strengthening personal privacy rights.
