This post also discusses the rich set Azure services that Microsoft customers and organizations can use to protect personal data in compliance with GDPR and other regulations for various parts of the world.

Personal Data Protection and GDPR

Although the information economy has existed for some time, the real value of personal data has only become more recently evident. Cyber theft of personal data exposes citizens around the world to significant personal risks. Big data analysis techniques enable organizations to track and predict individual behavior and can be deployed in automated decision-making. The combination of all these issues, together with the continuing advance of technology and concerns about the misuse of personal data by governments and corporations, has resulted in a new law passed by the EU to clarify the data rights of EU citizens and to ensure an appropriate level of EU-wide protection for personal data.

Personal data in this context means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will supersede the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (DPD) and all EU member states’ national laws based on it in May 2018. All organizations – wherever they are in the world – that process the personal data of EU residents must comply with the Regulation. Failure to do so could result in fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover.
