Backup Administrators: The #1 Advice to Deal with GDPR and the Right of Erasure

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new privacy regulation across the European Union (EU) that will take effect on May 25, 2018. It provides EU individuals (aka “data subjects”) with more control over their personal data, ensures transparency about the use of data, and requires security and controls to protect data. If your company offers goods or services (even for free) to EU residents, monitors EU residents’ behaviors (including via cookies), or has any type of physical presence in the EU, then your organization is probably subject to GDPR compliance.
