The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive European Union law that took effect on May 25, 2018 and regulates data privacy and security. The GDPR unifies other EU's data protection laws under a single umbrella. The GDPR objective is to protect personal data and protect the privacy rights of anyone who resides in an EU country or territory.
If you're an organization that collects, stores, or processes personal data on EU residents (regardless of location), you must comply with the GDPR. BitSpartan helps organizations become compliant with the GDPR by offering a range of information security and cybersecurity services that enable organizations to adhere to the GDPR privacy rights and data protection principles.
