At a time when data exploitation is the focal point of concern for companies, it is important to understand exactly what GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, actually is.
The General Data Protection Regulation is the logical consequence of the various texts regulating the protection of consumer data in the European Union.
It has been applicable since May 25, 2018 in all Member States of the European Union.
Since coming into force, this has replaced all previously existing national regulations.
In France, for example, the 1995 Data Protection Directive no longer applies, nor does the Organic Law 15/1999 in Spain.
