United States news sites block European Union readers due to GDPR

The GDPR is a lawyer's best friend, given the breadth of coverage and the ease with which the regulations can be violated by companies.

So far, this has mainly manifested in organisations refreshing their privacy policies and mailing lists, but in future it will require company-wide data management and reporting, and a much greater accountability to customers over how data is kept and used.

GDPR protects the privacy not only of European Union citizens worldwide but also of anyone who is party to a transaction while in the EU.

Retain or Store. This tells you how your data is being retained and why. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area.

The new rules strike at a core of businesses that offer free content online but that make money by collecting and sharing user data to sell targeted advertising. The NGO believes that those four social networks or messaging services essentially force their users to agree to their privacy standards or not use the services at all, rather than modifying their standards to ensure more online privacy and data protection. In a number of cases, the obligations of data controllers and processors are calibrated to the size of the business and/or to the nature of the data being processed. While its main thrust is to enhance citizens' rights by strengthening the obligations on those who use personal data, the impact of stronger data protection laws will be considerable for telecoms, media and digital industries. "Therefore, new jobs will be created for professionals skilled in cyber security skills", said Sai Pavan, director of SiriNiti, a cybersecurity services company.

A verdict in favour of the companies would allow the tech giants to deny services to those who refuse to divulge certain personal data.

Privacy advocates have hailed the new law as a model for personal data protection in the internet era.

Echoing the concern over data privacy, Vĕra Jourová, Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality said, "Personal data is the gold of the 21st century".

The privacy policy updates are lengthy and annoying (especially when they pop up right as you're in the middle of something), but if you want the option to keep your data more private than it has been, don't click "x" or delete the email from your inbox just yet. Throughout the week, users found their inboxes flooded with alerts from companies, service providers and more, letting users know that their respective terms of service had changed to comply with GDPR. It's crucial to document steps being taken as well as to prioritize addressing potential security risks.

"Due to its thoroughness and the fact that it is based on highly aspirational and ethical objectives, the GDPR is likely to become a global benchmark".

According to the nation's leading cyber law expert Pavan Duggal, India should not cut-paste any other country's law as it has to deal with a different set of problems. "GDPR is very practical on this idea: whatsoever is actually essential for an application is lawful without agreement, the other needs an open "yes" or "no' choice".
