The introduction of the GDPR in May 2018 will mark a major change in the IT and cloud computing world. It is a win for data protection advocates.

For businesses, it means a lot of preparation and adjustment.

It is the EU commission that has put this law in motion. But it is not just EU countries that will be affected by its wide reaching consequences. Who else will be affected by the new data protection regulation?

Businesses operating in the EU

It doesn’t matter where your business is registered or where your HQ is located. If your operations are located within the borders of the EU, you will have to comply with the GDPR.

Businesses serving EU clients

And even if your operations are not within EU borders. If any of your clients are European, they are under the protection of the new GDPR regulation and therefore you’ll have to make sure your practices comply with the new requirements.

Businesses handling EU subjects’ data

And even if you’re not located in the EU, or your clients aren’t specifically from the EU. If your service or product includes handling the data of EU subjects, the long arm of the law will get you if you’re not adhering to the new GDPR rules.

The GDPR regulation set to come into play spring next year is likely to affect the majority of businesses. Make sure that your business is prepared, and that you act now.
