DistriNet R&D Bites: GDPR Compliance in Software, Systems and Services
Short description: The new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) strengthens and unifies data protection regulations for individuals within the European Union. Starting from May 2018, all companies operating within the EU need to comply. Failure to do so can result in penalties of 4% of their worldwide turnover. Despite the urgency of industry adoption, many companies struggle to grasp the concrete impact of the GDPR. Additionally, legal and technological support to implement the GDPR in practice are lacking.
