The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was designed to coordinate and streamline data privacy laws across Europe; to protect and ensure that all EU citizens can have some expectation of data privacy; and influence the way organizations across the European Union (EU) approach data privacy. It also affects any organization, inside or outside of the EU that is involved in processing data, which could identify a person, either directly or indirectly.
