It's extensive, expensive and coming in for the kill: meet the General Data Protection Regulation, the massive new set of privacy provisions for all who do business within European Union shores. With strict safeguards, increased governance expectations and massive fines for failure to comply, the GDPR breaks new ground for personal privacy and individual data rights.  Officially in force starting May 2018, if your business is handling the personally identifiable information of E.U citizens and you're not in compliance, you'll want to get caught up, fast.

For Canadian businesses, the question is cropping up from European partners: what makes the GDPR so different from existing privacy agreements, and why do they need to comply? What are the implications for technology development, data controls, and why is it so revolutionary? Privacy Technologist Victoria McIntosh unravels the driving forces behind the world's largest privacy protection regulation, and what makes it unique against past provisions.
