On May 25th 2018, it became fully applicable in all Member States. The EU Regulation 2016/679, known as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) – on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing and transfer of personal data.
The GDPR originates from precise needs, as indicated by the EU Commission itself, for legal certainty, harmonisation and major simpleness of the regulations concerning the transfer of personal data from the EU to other parts of the world. It also represents a necessary and urgent reply to the challenges brought about by technological developments (at the beginning of October, the WP29 adopted three fundamental measures that will have important effects on fundamental aspects of the GDPR, precisely on the issue of technological innovation) and by new models of economic growth, taking into account the demand for personal data protection that European citizens increasingly ask for.
ECO NEXT conducts risk assessments and verifies the technical and organisational measures adopted in order to ensure compliance with the (Regulation GDPR).
