What is GDPR?
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect May 25, 2018 and applies to all businesses that handle EU citizens’ personal data, which encompasses a broad range of data that may include the individual’s name, address, email address, telephone number, along with any other data that identifies the individual. This white paper provides general guidelines to customers who have deployed S2 Security solutions in the EU. This paper is for informational purposes only. It is not legal advice and should not be relied upon as legal advice.
The regulation defines the rights of the Data Subject, and the responsibilities of the Data Controller and the Data Processor. The heaviest compliance burden falls to the Data Controller, the entity that decides which personal data to collect and has the ultimate responsibility for safeguarding it.
