The law doesn't just apply to EU organizations, but all organizations globally touch EU citizens' data. As a company, you require to be honest and open regarding how you are utilizing such information. Moreover, you are required to reveal why you are gathering data and get consent before gathering any such information. Should a breach happen, you must report the infraction within 72 hours to the authority.
The law is complex and challenging to handle. Our team is here to help you understand how to comply with GDPR and help respond to violations.

Our insurance policy will respond by paying breach response costs, claim expenses, and any resulting damages.
