The GDPR will come into effect on May 25, 2018, replacing the current Data Protection Act in the biggest overhaul of data protection legislation in more than 25 years. The law will introduce new requirements for how organizations, both in the EU and abroad, process personal data.
Companies collecting data on citizens of EU countries will need to adhere to strict new rules regarding the protection of customer data. The GDPR defines its requirements and rights granted to EU citizens in a document containing 99 articles. While companies collecting and storing customer data from citizens in the EU will need to address each of the articles to achieve compliance, some of the articles will have a greater impact on businesses than others.
The fear of how GDPR will change everything "or make things too difficult" is wasting time and energy on the inevitable. Instead, you should choose to see GDPR as an opportunity, as it levels the playing field for everybody, and the benefits will include better interactions, with the right message to the right people at the right time. The goals to improve and simplify data protection for EU data, citizens, residents and businesses are all well and good, but what does it mean for marketers, and what can you do to adjust to it?
