In the European Union (EU), privacy and data protection are fundamental human rights enforced through law. The GDPR supersedes existing national data protection laws across the EU, bringing uniformity by introducing just one main data protection law for organizations to comply with.
The GDPR applies to any organization processing and storing EU residents’ personal data, irrespective of the organization’s location or where the data is processed. Canadian and US organizations with any connection to the EU – whether through subsidiaries, customers, or suppliers – stand to be affected.
