The GDPR will replace the current Data Protection Directive and will be transitioned in over a two year period with the full integration expected by May 25th, 2018, at which time it will be legally binding and applicable to all affected entities.
The strength of the GDPR is its harmonization of data protection processes throughout the European Union. This new legislation simplifies compliance standards for non-European union companies since it is one set of regulations to comply with EU-wide as opposed to a different one for each country within the EU as is currently in place under the Data Protection Directive.
Any organization that employs a data controller for processing and storing data from an EU-based individual or business is responsible for complying with GDPR standards. This applies to all businesses regardless of whether they are EU-based or not.

The GDPR is comprised of 99 articles which detail its regulations and its commitments to citizens of the EU. There are several articles which are of significant importance to non-EU companies involved in business dealings with EU entities. They are as follows:
