General Data Protection Regulation – What is GDPR?

The GDPR was created to protect the data and information of people when they use services over the internet.

The protection and secrecy of information is a major concern of those who enjoy online products and services.

The GDPR proposal was launched in 2012, but it was not until 2016 that the European Union approved the proposal. That came into effect on May 25.

The GDPR is intended to prevent the abuse and leaking of information online, as is continuously with Facebook.

For some time now, surveys have revealed that Facebook collects SMS data and phone calls on Android.

Seriously violating the rights and secrecy of information of its users.

And that’s where GDPR comes in, to put an end to and put limits on the illegal use of user data over the internet through websites and applications.

GDPR protects your data and information when you use:

Social networks, financial services, stores, and any other platform that stores consumer and user data.

Another important point of the GDPR is to guarantee the web surfer the option to totally exclude their information from a particular site.

For most social networks continue to store your information even after you have deleted your account.

What are the changes for the companies?

GDPR has clear and strict rules regarding the protection of data of any and every online venture.

The European Union has established that every site or digital platform establishes methods for the data and information of its customers and users to be 100% protected.

The GDPR rules still indicate that the clients’ personal files are renamed in order to protect the user’s identity.

But as every business needs agility in its actions, so, in this case it is fundamental that every digital venture has a manager.

The manager will be responsible for keeping the information and data of its clients in secrecy.

Always focusing on the smooth running of your business.

In case the company data is stolen by hackers or any other incident that exposes the users’ data.

The company in question will have a deadline of up to 72 hours to disclose information about the event.

Putting an end to the practice of more than years to divulge data of a cyber invasion.

The GDPR rules are very strict for digital companies and the fine for those who fail them can reach up to 20 million.
