EU GDPR 6 Principles

EU GDPR requires the implementation of effective controls across six principle areas and a seventh area, accountability. These principles set out how each data controller should process the personal data of clients or data subjects, as they are referred to in the regulation. Variants of these principles exist in many current Data Protection Acts in other countries such as the UK, for example. Organisations should take time to research and understand the new principles, as they must adhere to them in order to be EU GDPR compliant.
