General Data Protection Regulation Update
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which covers European Union (EU) residents took effect on 25 May 2018. The new regulation has changed the way data privacy is addressed not only in the EU but across the globe. For the mobility industry, the implications are far reaching as every entity which comes into contact with personal data of EU residents must adhere to the regulations.
