The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European privacy law approved by the European Commission in 2016 going effective May 25th 2018. The GDPR will replace a prior European Union privacy directive known as Directive 95/46/EC which has been the basis of European data protection law since 1995. The GDPR is an attempt to strengthen, and modernize EU data protection law and enhance individual rights and freedoms, consistent with the European understanding of privacy as a fundamental human right. The GDPR regulates, among other things, how individuals and organisations may obtain, use, store, and remove personal data. In a nutshell, it’s giving EU citizens and residents control over their personal data while simplifying the regulatory environment for international business that takes place in the EU.


The Data Protection Principles include requirements such as:



Why is it important?


GDPR adds some new requirements regarding how companies should protect individuals’ personal data that they collect and process. It also raises the stakes for compliance by increasing enforcement and imposing greater fines for breach. Beyond these facts it’s simply the right thing to do. At BSL Ladder we strongly believe that your data privacy is very important, and we already have solid security and privacy practices in place that go beyond the requirements of this new regulation.
