The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will begin May 25, 2018, and businesses across the globe are bracing for the updated legislation. The GDPR is changing more than data compliance—it’s changing the way businesses operate—affecting how and when they interact with the data of EU residents. One industry that will be held to higher standards is healthcare.
The healthcare industry can expect a variety of new challenges when it comes to gathering and protecting the personal data of European Union residents. The new legislation aims to build upon common and current personal information protection, working to ensure that data is protected across all processing activities and endpoints.
