If you’re (planning on) doing business in or with the EU, your organization will have to comply with the latest European privacy legislation: the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This legislation aims to protect the personal data of your end users, including your customers and staff. It pays to takes this seriously, because if you are operating in Europe and are found to be in violation of this regulation, your organization will face stiff fines.
The GDPR identifies four main pillars in its quest to protect user data:
you need to minimize the use of personal data in serving consumers
you need proper APIs to allow users to transfer their data to other companies
While complying with data privacy regulations may seem like a drag, it also offers new opportunities. For example, introducing transparency and free movement will create a more equitable relationship with your customers. If handled well, with a smooth customer experience and the right tone of voice, this can bring you closer and increase customer loyalty.
