GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a law on protection of personal data of the European Union (EU) residents and citizens that will take effect on May 25, 2018. By that date, businesses having access to personal data of customers residing in one of the 28 EU member states must conform to strict GDPR provisions. Regulatory non-compliance would cost dearly: any breach would result in a fine of at least €20 million. To comply with GDPR, companies should carefully revise their inner processes and technical infrastructure including business applications used to manage customer information.
