Prepare Your SaaS Data Backup Strategy for GDPR
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the biggest shakeup of data protection laws in nearly 25 years. For the uninitiated, GDPR is designed to give EU individuals better control over how their personal data is collected, processed, and stored. It also significantly improves the transparency organizations must provide on how that data is being managed.
GDPR, while approved in April 2016, becomes legally enforceable on May 25, 2018. It applies to everyone involved in the processing of data about individuals in the European Union (EU), regardless of whether the organization is located within the EU. Contrary to popular belief, GDPR is not an unreasonable legal imposition, rather it is an important right for EU Individuals as well as an opportunity for organizations to deepen their commitment to data privacy and protection of all personal data.
