General Data Protection Regulation

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation by the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission that unifies all data protection regulations within the EU, including exports of personal data outside the EU.

GDPR will be fully applicable on May 25, 2018 and any company that offers goods or services to EU residents, or processes data related to EU residents or has employees in the EU will be required to comply with it. In essence, GDPR enforces that users remain in control of the personal data they share with companies.

GDPR requires companies to establish a series of initiatives and controls with regards to the personal they store from clients and users. Xeerpa is one of the first CIAM European companies to become GDPR-ready, implementing strategies and measures in compliance with the new regulations, including those related with data security, hosting and data processing.

How Xeerpa complies with GDPR
