Data protection is at the heart of lively social debates. On the 27th of April 2016, a new european regulation was adopted. Effective in 2018, this regulation will profoundly modify the way of managing data protection. It will have an impact on the way companies handle personal data of E.U.-based individuals, mainly by forcing companies to define a real governance policy in order to ensure the legal compliance of their data processing activites. Also, every non-E.U. based company that collects or handles data of E.U. nationals will need to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO)—either internally or externally—to serve as a point person to the local Data Protection Agency.
