GDPR overview

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is considered the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. It impacts companies globally, not just in the European Union (EU).

GDPR protects the personally identifiable information (PII) of all EU citizens—allowing for fines of up to 4 percent of group revenue or EUR20m, whichever is bigger, in the event a company's consumer data is breached.

Companies may view this as a burden but Accenture believes that the new rules and regulations open up an opportunity.
