GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION
Regulation (ΕU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 deals with the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data. It is also known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and it is both about the Data Controllers as well as the Data Handlers of personal data.
The new regulation was put into effect on May 25, 2018 and is the toughest privacy and security law in the world. All organizations that process the personal data of EU citizens or residents, or offer goods or services to such people are required to be compliant even if they are not in the EU.
Non-compliance to the provisions set by the Regulation can lead to huge administrative fines which max out at €20 million or 4% of global revenue. Moreover, data subjects, whose personal data have been leaked or violated, can seek compensation for damages.

Personal data — Personal data is any information that relates to an individual who can be directly or indirectly identified. Names and email addresses are obviously personal data. Location information, ethnicity, gender, biometric data, religious beliefs, web cookies, and political opinions can also be personal data. Pseudonymous data can also fall under the definition if it’s relatively easy to ID someone from it.

Data controller — The person who decides why and how personal data will be processed. If you’re an owner or employee in your organization who handles data, this is you.
