What is GDPR?

GDPR is a new set of rules governing the privacy and security of personal data belonging to EU residents. The new protection act will make significant changes to privacy laws and will replace the outdated Data Protection Directive from 1995. The goal of GDPR is to protect all European Union residents from privacy and data breaches. It mandates higher standards for how companies can use personal data. Under GDPR, EU residents will have more control, transparency, and safety over how their information is collected and used.

So, what does this mean for you?

GDPR has profound implications for companies like GES, which manage events, exhibitions, and shows attended by EU residents. If you handle any data about EU attendees, prospects or customers, your work is impacted by GDPR.
