Here at Tufin, we welcome the positive changes the General Data Protection Regulation (the GDPR) will bring, such as the “privacy by design and privacy by default” approach.

With customers in nearly every country in the world, we are preparing for the GDPR to take effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR expands the privacy rights granted to European individuals and requires certain companies that process the personal data of European individuals to comply with a new set of regulations. The GDPR may affect companies that process personal data of European individuals and have a presence in the EU as well as companies that do not have any presence in the EU but target European markets.

What is GDPR?

In 2016, the European Union (EU) approved a new privacy regulation called the GDPR. The GDPR expands the privacy rights granted to European individuals and requires certain companies that process the personal data of European individuals to comply with a new set of regulations.

When does the GDPR come into effect?

The GDPR, effecting companies which collect or process the personal data of EU individuals, comes into effect on May 25, 2018.

How has Tufin been preparing for the GDPR?
