GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation, also referred to as the data protection regulation. This is a regulation, or a new data protection law if you will, that was adopted in the EU and came into force on May 25, 2018.
The whole point of this new law is to protect personal data and the processing of these in the EU. In other words, to ensure that personal data about you and me are collected and maintained in a secure manner, while simultaneously giving users more rights regarding their own information.
As a member of both the EEA and Schengen, the law also applies to Norway. This means that all Norwegian companies are required to comply with the new data protection regulation, regardless of size, as long as they receive and process information that can be linked to individuals. This could be customers, stakeholders, or their own employees.
