The GDPR

Aristi believes the GDPR is an important step forward for clarifying and enabling individual privacy rights.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) imposes new rules on organizations in the European Union (EU) and those that offer goods and services to people in the EU, or that collect and analyze data tied to EU residents, no matter where they are located.


Enhanced personal privacy rights


Increased duty for protecting data


Mandatory breach reporting

The GDPR will transform how personal data is collected, shared and used globally, and has been described by experts as ambitious, complex and strict.
