The General Data Protection Regulation will come into effect in the European Union (EU) on May 25, 2018. The GDPR aims to strengthen the protection of personal data and affects all business operating within the EU. Failing to comply could incur a maximum fine of €20m (£17m) or 4% of global turnover.
