Here are descriptions of just a few of the more common acronyms that you've likely seen discussed since GDPR was announced. Not this time! In the face of the recent Facebook-Cambridge Analytical (FACA) scandal, wherein the personal data over 87 million people were compromised, and the tons of data that tech companies like Google collect on us often without our consent, the least that one can do is to shower praise on the European Union for bringing civilization back to mankind via the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that went into effect 24 May 2018, with enforcement starting the following day. It will make sure that regulation is in place to force companies to ensure the highest level of personal privacy protection.

The rules are now being considered by the European Parliament and the Council, so there's no guarantee they will ever take effect.

In order to identify which information is sensitive and business critical, businesses need to know what data they're handling, and where, and why.

According to, the complaints will put an end to the annoying pop-ups. As per the latest industry studies, an estimated 44 billion GB worth of data was created on a daily basis in 2016. By contrast, it took Yahoo more than two years to reveal a breach that ultimately involved three billion users.

As a result of the regulation, several USA news outlets were temporarily unavailable in Europe, reported BBC. Had the incident occurred after May 25, the company might have faced a fine of up to 20 million euros, or 4 percent of its global revenue in last fiscal year, whichever is larger, if their European Union customers were affected.

What about users outside the EU? Wendy Mee, a partner at the Canadian law firm Blake, Cassels & Graydon, said GDPR only applies to organizations that offer goods and services in the EU. Organizations can then delete the non-essential private data to reduce the risk of a data breach, and the hefty penalties that will inevitably follow. The first is to design a collective data legislation that will encompass the whole of Europe. And if they don't, they will face potentially serious consequences in the form of large fines or worse. Shrems told the Financial Times that the current consent systems are evidently not in accordance with the rules of GDPR.
