What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

In this European edition of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Cliff Smith of Parameter Security joins me to discuss General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Cliff (@BismthSalamandr), recently gave a talk at ShowMeCon on GDPR and why everyone should care. It's a really good talk and a great primer if you haven't dug into GDPR, yet (you should). Cliff is a recovering lawyer, so he's providing a different angle than your normal security professional.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is GDPR?
  • Why it could change
  • Why it's important
  • Who it impacts
