The General Data Protection Regulation as an opportunity
The revised General Data Protection Regulation came into effect in spring 2016 and will have to be adhered to by all companies within the European Union from next year onwards. Progress has been slow in light of the comprehensive changes and tightening regulations which companies are now faced with. Nevertheless, businesses will be unable to avoid implementing the extensive measures and substantial changes to their company structure. While feared by many, the decreed change does contain substantial opportunities for companies.
