Rackspace Technology: Understanding GDPR
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was released on April 14, 2016 and replaced the EU Data Protection Directive, also known as Directive 95/46/EC. The GDPR applies to all organizations doing business with individuals in the EU, whether these organizations are based in the EU or not. It also addresses the export of “personal data” outside the EU. This whitepaper includes several answers to questions that we hear time and time again from our customers. We also want to provide you with an update on what steps Rackspace Technology has taken and what services we offer to our customers to help them meet their compliance obligations.
