The European governing authorities back in twenty sixteen gave large, medium and small businesses two years to comply with a key piece of regulation which brings together all the regulations which span the entire twenty-eight bloc of the European Union. The main objective is allowing every business or corporation control over its personal data as it is collected individually. It will not just affect the corporations located within the European Union but those that do business with those organizations within the EU located outside the EU. For example, those businesses that sell services, goods or even monitor data or behavior of organizations within the confines of the EU bloc will have to comply with the GDPR regulations. The impact of the GDPR on businesses across the globe is going to be extremely significant. The GDPR regulation passing into law on May twenty-fifth of twenty eighteen supersedes a previous regulation called the Data Protection Directive.

Major Policies of the GDPR
First and foremost for most organizations is the consent clause in most data companies offerings to businesses of all sizes. When data is offered at times consent is not granted but still data is given then charged for and these businesses are left holding the extremely heaving and expensive bag for years to come. The GDPR policy will reduce this burden and make these data companies responsible for their consent clauses and organizations will actually have to give consent in order to be given data. Gone are the days of bewildering and ambiguous clauses to get business owners to agree to sign on the dotted line to agree to large amounts of expensive data they simply don’t need. Along with consent being easy to understand it also must be easy to withdraw and be age appropriate which in the European Union means sixteen years of age. Other policies include:
- The organization or persons involved have seventy-two hours to report the incident
- User data is more accessible
- What data is being used for will be much more accessible
- The right to be anonymous
- Third party opt-out
- Transfer data at any time to another data carrier
