GDPR and You
- Everyone wants their data protected, not just residents of the European Union.
- The European Union’s European General Data Protection Regulation—aka, GDPR sets new standards for protection that should be followed by anyone with a global business model.
- The infographic below contains the three best takeaways that will change your business and help you move forward with compliance.
The most stringent security laws in the world governing your data and privacy are the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) laws of the European Union. They will levy heavy fines and penalties over non-compliance, but compliance can be “loosely” defined at times with the ruling’s wording. Yet, this is the most comprehensive of its kind, and large, medium, and small businesses that might have a presence in the global marketplace must understand what this vital issue means to you and your potential clients. KMDE can take that mystery away with its managed hosting services and can be a powerful way to bring your website into compliance with the least amount of effort on your part.
Not only is it essential to operate ethically, but in this day and age, it is essential to keep identities safe and data from falling into the hands of those that would rob, cheat, and steal your hard-earned cash, and business reputation. KMDE strives to help make the process of compliance stress-free, and our services are managed in ways that help you scale your needs to fit your business profile. Small, medium, and large scale business presences can rest assured knowing that KMDE’s team of knowledgeable people will help assure your compliance at any level of need.
This article explains compliance with the GDPR and why understanding Post World War II Europeans about the right to privacy as essential, and as technology changed, so did the rules and laws regarding human privacy rights. Industries and businesses not making an effort to protect themselves are open for devastating rulings and fines. WordPress site admins can find information to educate themselves, but KMDE can take the frustration and pain that may come with that for smaller and medium-sized business presences. With the advent of more online eCommerce presences and more online financial banking institutions, we have seen many new editions and changes to the laws since the mid-1990s. As of May 25, 2018, the full breadth of the law is being enforced making it the strongest set of privacy laws in the world.
