GDPR Essentials Training, Kuala Lumpur, 26-27 September 2018

1. General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation is an EU directive aiming to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union and is enforceable from 25 April 2018. GDPR is not only applicable to companies with an established presence on the EU market, but to any company or organization that processes sensitive data of EU citizens. Because of importance of the EU market globally, it is increasingly difficult to avoid being subject to GDPR in ASEAN as well.
