In addition, the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has come into force throughout the European Union on May 25, 2018. The GDPR introduces significant changes and additional requirements, which have a wide-ranging impact on businesses around the world, irrespective of where they operate. L & Y can help your business prepare for the GDPR by providing preliminary assessment on whether the GDPR applies, mapping, assessing and documenting your processing of personal data, analysis of your data sharing contracts, and advice on international transfers.
