On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union comes into force, a complex legislation that adds new protections for all citizens residing in the EU. The legislation recognizes the right of individuals to data portability, to be forgotten, to be informed transparently on the processing of their information and to be promptly notified of any security breaches.
Among the numerous points touched by the GDPR regulation, one of the most important ones is certainly the protection of data and the backup of the same. For this reason, the topic closely affects all companies that store and manage sensitive customer data such as Service Providers.
