What is GDPR and How Does it Affect Web Hosting Companies? Since online activity and storage of personal data are increasing day by day, there is a growing demand to protect the sensitive data of individuals from harm. The Council of the European Union was long waiting to tighten up data protection followed by serial data breaches by anonymous entities and big data managing companies. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an answer from the Council to these growing demands and, aims to strengthen and unifies data protection for all individuals residing in the European Union (EU).
The new GDPR norms make any company that processes the data of individuals belonging to the European Union falls under the category of data processors. Since Web hosting companies also have direct access to personal data they are also liable to follow the strict regulations of GDPR.
The new norms of GDPR were long adapted on 27 April 2016 and will become enforceable from 25 May 2018. It will be sanctioned by the Council of the European Union and will supersede the 1995 Data Protection Directive (DPD) (Directive 95/46/EC). The council has given a two-year transition period for the enterprises to evolve from the current data protection system to a more transparent GDPR.
