Marinette Nyström interviewing Casper Pedersen, Principal Business Solutions Manager The EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was approved in May 2016, and companies must be compliant by May 2018.

Ab 2018 verschärft die EU massiv den Datenschutz. Betroffen ist weltweit jedes Unternehmen, das EU-Bürgern etwas anbietet, ihr Kauf&Klick-Verhalten analysiert oder im Auftrag verarbeitet. Erste Projekte sind bereits gestartet, um die geforderten „angemessenen Maßnahmen“ real auch nachweisen zu können. Denn hohe Strafen und schlechte Presse lauern. Es lockt das Vertrauen
The European Parliament has adopted new personal data protection regulation. This must be implemented in all organisations by end of May 2018, and applies also to EEA countries.
