It won’t be long now before the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect and apply directly in all European Union (EU) member states. But if your company is located outside of the EU and you think the regulation will not affect you, think again. This legislation will have an impact on every organisation and corporation in the world that offers goods or services to companies in the EU or holds personal identifiable data from any European individual.
What is worrying is that many businesses are failing to see how the regulations within the EU will affect them. The aim of this guide is to provide information on the GDPR, some of its most important (and most talked-about) elements, its implications and of course, how ASEAN businesses can prepare themselves for it.
By the end of this guide, you will hopefully have a better understanding of the GDPR and how it can affect your company.
