Data protection laws in Europe, until now, have been fragmented and inconsistent. With passage of the new European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) this year, 2018 will be the beginning of widespread unification and standardization of data privacy requirements across 28 EU Member States that now comprise the EU. Organizations should start planning now, as they will have increased obligations related to data throughout its lifecycle. The growth of data use through Big Data, Cloud, Mobile, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications has heightened the challenges of managing, securing and governing information.
