The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU.
The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. The GDPR replaces the data protection directive of 1995. The regulation was adopted on 27 April 2016.
It is enforceable as of 25 May 2018 after a two-year transition period and, unlike a directive, it does not require national governments to pass any enabling legislation, and is thus directly binding and applicable.

Visma Connect’s solution, the first in Europe
The European Data Protection Regulation replaces the Data Protection Directive as of 25 May 2018. This Regulation means that all European Data Protection Supervisors must take action.
All Supervisor Authority must facilitate an accessible and public channel to send Data Breach Notifications (DBN) in order to receive, collect, view and administrate DBNs for processing and reporting purposes.
We have developed the first DBN service in Europe for the Dutch Data Protection Authority. This service is ready to be implemented by other Supervisory Authorities in the EU. By using a 'one for all' approach, it can improve maintainability and lower production costs.
