Learn more about GDPR compliance solutions

GDPR compliance refers to adhering to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a set of regulations designed to protect the privacy and personal data of European Union (EU) citizens. It entails implementing appropriate measures to ensure data protection, obtaining consent, providing transparency, and fulfilling individuals’ rights regarding their data.

GDPR compliance involves several steps, including conducting data audits, implementing privacy policies and procedures, obtaining consent for data processing, ensuring secure data storage and transfer, appointing a Data Protection Officer (DPO), if required, responding to data breaches, and regularly reviewing and updating compliance measures to maintain ongoing adherence to GDPR regulations.

The GDPR regulates organizations that process personal data of individuals located in the European Union (EU), regardless of whether the organization itself is based in the EU. This includes businesses, government entities, nonprofit organizations, and any other entities that handle the personal data of EU citizens when offering goods or services or monitoring their behavior.
