GDPR – GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION

“If you make customers unhappy in physical world they might each tell 6 Friends, If you make customers unhappy on the Internet they can each tell 6000 Friends…….” Jeff Bezos.

In an ever growing digital world Organizations, Marketers had long controlled the Personal Information of consumers. Storing, Manipulating, Distributing & Selling the personal data of consumers had been part of the organizations long term strategy, whether the individuals liked it or not. Using the personal data to qualitatively & quantitatively predict the behaviour pattern i.e., Purchase Pattern gave distinctive competitive advantage to organizations. The users were bombarded with relevant advertisements; soon users were bombarded with all kinds of irrelevant advertisements in all their devices via SMS, email, Instant messages, Phone calls etc., more often users ended up victims of phishing leading to huge financial losses. The continuous attack of advertisements from irrelevant, unknown sources began to interrupt users’ digital activities resulting in invasion of privacy…….

In the year 1995 European Union (EU) announced Data Protection Directive bill to protect the processing and free movement of individual’s personal data.

What is GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation?

The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is a legal framework that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of European Union (EU) citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. It covers all companies that deal with the data of EU citizens, specifically banks, insurance companies, and other financial companies.

The 1995 Data Protection Directive allowed each of the 28 European Union countries to customize the DPD according to the needs of the citizens of respective countries which allowed lot of leeway’s and failed to protect the privacy of individual’s data.

In the year 2016 European Union adopted GDPR, which is a Regulation than a directive. GDPR requires full adoption of regulatory act forcing all 28 European Union countries to fully comply without any leeway, what-so-ever.

Today a whopping 128 out of 194 countries had put in place legislation to secure the protection of data and privacy.
