The EU General Data Protection Regulation is a major step in digital privacy and is the result of a long process settled in European values. It is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. The 99 legal articles in the Regulation aim at strengthening laws on data protection, thereby giving EU citizens control over their personal data, while emphasizing the ideas of freedom, security, and equality within the European Union. The General Data Protection Regulation will apply from 25th of May 2018 and should impact nearly any data-driven business in the European Digital Single Market.
