It will regulate how an organisation treats and/or uses the personal data of EU citizens, including organisations located outside of the EU. It will replace the national data protection laws currently in place with a single set of rules, directly enforceable in each EU member state. The GDPRs focus is the protection, collection and management of personal data, (i.e. data about individuals) and it applies to all organisations who hold or otherwise process personal data of people in EU Member States.
